The work of Slow Foods Barbados during the height of Covid has been celebrated by RUBIS.
TeamRUBIS recently made a donation of $1000 in Ultra Tec fuel vouchers to the organization, which brings together professional chefs and talented cooks to prepare warm, wholesome nutritious soup for those in need in the community. Established in 2012 as a non-profit organisation, Slow Foods Barbados has delivered over 40,000 bowls of soup to date, focusing on some of the most vulnerable among us, three times a week, in the parishes of St Peter and St Andrew.
Marguerite O’Neal, Lead Volunteer Coordinator, Slow Foods Barbados, explained, “From inception, I have worn many hats for the soup kitchen, from being a volunteer cook to organising food shopping for the kitchen and bringing the spirit of fellowship and community to the Slow Food Soup Drive. We thank RUBIS for the support as it gives our volunteer drivers an ease as they make their deliveries.”
Nicole George, RUBIS said, “TeamRUBIS is pleased to lend support to the excellent work being done by the many volunteers at Slow Food Barbados.” She added, “Throughout the pandemic, RUBIS has sought to support efforts such as this at both the national and community level.”
