Jamaica: Over 3,000 Persons Benefit From Food For The Poor Christmas Treat

Hundreds of persons, from as early as 5 o’clock, lined up outside the St George’s College Emmett Park Pavilion yesterday morning, eager to enter the grounds of the complex to benefit from the Food For The Poor (FFP) annual Christmas treat.

Vera Williams and Barbara Phillips were among the more than 3,000 persons who were fed, entertained, and given food packages and hygiene kits.

Williams, who is 74 years old, told The Gleaner that this was her second time benefiting from the initiative, having first attended last year.

“Coming here, well, it’s good. It’s good helping the poor and helping the elderly. And it help we a lot because some of we don’t have anything at home, and we come here, we get, and we glad for it. We give God thanks for it. They are doing a very good job,” Williams said.

This view was shared by 67-year-old Phillips.
