AML Foods launches annual Feed 5000 Families initiative, donates $30,000

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — AML Foods Limited launched its fifth Annual Feed 5,000 Families holiday giveback today.

The company announced that it will jumpstart their goal of raising $90,000 with a $30,000 donation towards the initiative, in celebration of their 30th year anniversary.

“Bahamians are facing unprecedented hardships as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and now more than ever our communities need our help,” said Renea Bastian, VP of Marketing & Communications at AML Foods Limited.

“It’s a very difficult time for local food banks and community organizations tasked with feeding those in need and we are committed to assisting as much as we can.”

AML is appealing to the general public and corporate Bahamas to purchase or donate towards the purchase of Christmas Dinner Packages valued at $40, at any Fresh Market, Solomon’s, or Cost Right location on New Providence or Grand Bahama.

The initiative will run from November 16 to December 19.

The company is joining forces with the National Food Distribution Taskforce, and all proceeds will be donated to the program to help families in New Providence and Grand Bahama.

Organizations, civic groups, or private citizens interested in partnering with AML Foods to make the holidays brighter for Bahamian families in need can purchase Christmas dinner packages, or make a donation toward a package, at the registers in any Fresh Market, Solomon’s, or Cost Right location, on New Providence or Grand Bahama.

Gavin Watchorn, CEO & and president of AML Foods, said thanks to the company’s donations and the generosity of its partners and the wider Bahamian community, it has raised over $400,000 to help families in need since starting the program in 2016.

“We are humbled by the support for the initiative we have seen from our store associates, customers, and corporate partners over the years. It’s a perfect example of how working together makes a huge difference.”

This year, the company hopes to raise $90,000 through AML donations, $30,000 through customer donations, and $30,000 from corporate sponsorships.
