The third largest island in the Caribbean, Jamaica is home to about 3 million people. The island’s beauty continues to be marred by an alarming increase in poverty, violent crime and unemployment.
Throughout the island, there is a tremendous need for decent housing, orphan care, modern school buildings, agriculture initiatives and other income-generating projects.
Food For The Poor has been working in Jamaica since its founding in 1982. What began with small-scale food distributions in Kingston has now grown into a massive network of like-minded groups and individuals working together to help Jamaica’s poor.
