Placencia Food Bank

The people of the small fishing village of Placencia, Belize humbly ask for your assistance in creating our very own Placencia Food Bank! We are a village in a country with a tourism dependent economy and most of our tour guides, shop owners, service industry workers and other citizens are entirely without income for the foreseeable future until the Coronavirus crisis allows us to open back up our borders. Thousands of tourists flock to our village each year to enjoy the beautiful beaches, delicious food, warm weather and lively music that Belizean culture offers. It is now, with our streets empty and our restaurants closed, that we would like for all who are able, to help us ensure that Placencia can offer that same paradise atmosphere when our tourism industry booms once again. The Placencia Food Bank strives to ensure that every family and elder in the village has food, toiletries and cleaning products to last them until the crisis is over. The funds will be directed through the attached American bank account and transferred to the food bank's Belize bank account under Amanda Berry. Thus far, we have distributed over 26,000 pounds of food to families in Placencia and Seine Bight. $8,000 bzd is allotted every month to each village for the purchase of wholesale goods. Every little bit helps. From the heart of the Caribbean, to wherever you are in the world, we thank you.
