Bahamas Feeding Network Cruises into the Holidays with 25,000 Pounds of Turkey Donation

Nassau, December 13, 2023 – The Bahamas Feeding Network (BFN) received a donation of 25,000 pounds of turkey from Royal Caribbean International, ensuring that thousands of Bahamian homes enjoy a holiday meal this year. The cruise line's commitment to BFN began in 2019, with an initial donation of $25,000. To date, with its overall contribution of more than $500,000 in donations, Royal Caribbean International has remained the feeding network’s largest corporate donor.

On its fourth consecutive year of providing significant food donations, the company is supporting the food supply for hundreds of ministries and feeding centres.

Turkeys will be distributed to more than 120 ministries and feeding centres ranging from small entities with a dozen members to large ones like Great Commission Ministries.

“We cannot thank Royal Caribbean International enough for its ongoing commitment to feeding the hungry and helping the Bahamas Feeding Network win the battle against hunger that plagues far too many in The Bahamas,” said Bahamas Feeding Network Chairman, Felix Stubbs. “Hunger is a terrible thing to see any time of year, but especially sad around the holidays when everything around the one who is suffering is festive and all they can think of is how am I going to put food on the table? Thank you, again, Royal Caribbean International, for helping us answer that question.”

Today, Russell Benford, VP Government Relations, the Americas, Royal Caribbean Group, who serves on the board of BFN, was in Nassau for the distribution.

Ambassador at large Nicholas Symonette brought remarks from the Minister of Foreign Affairs Fred Mitchell. Ambassador Chorale entertained with Christmas carols. Also participating were Bahamas Feeding Network directors, Wendy McDonald, AVP, Government Relations, Caribbean, Royal Caribbean Group and Philip Simon, President, Royal Beach Club and General Manager, Royal Caribbean International Bahamas.
