Food For The Poor began serving in Barbados in 2015. The international relief and development organization is working primarily with The HUB People-Helping-People, a nonprofit organization that was developed and launched in April 2014, at the request of Bishop Jason Gordon of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgetown, Barbados. The HUB is a nondenominational organization that serves as an initial point of contact between people in need and community service organizations.
