Landlubber Logistics (our grocery delivery service) received unsolicited community donations to help us feed those who were in dire financial need during the Covid-19 pandemic, and as we became aware of struggling community members, we procured and delivered groceries to them. We formalized this division of its operation and named it “Caribbean Kickstand.”
Caribbean Kickstand helps anyone in need of groceries on St. John during times of economic collapse. When business is interrupted, residents can use Caribbean Kickstand to request a grocery box to sustain them, for a week or two, while food stamps or unemployment benefits are still processing.
Caribbean Kickstand is to be used a few times by an individual until they can find a regular resource such as a new job, returned tourism, unemployment, food stamp or disability benefits. It is not a continual free food source.
Caribbean Kickstand is for groceries only, and excludes hot or to-go food.
Still in its early days, Caribbean Kickstand is now in contact with many local food programs and volunteer efforts to optimize our effectiveness and efficiency.
What we ask in return for a grocery box given is for individual recipients to "Pay it Forward" to the next person in need when they get moving again.
We have been blessed to have a sponsor willing to match upto $5000 in donations.
Please follow us on Facebook to see what we are doing and how to request Caribbean Kickstand assistance or regular grocery delivery.
