Buzz group delivers meals for the needy

A restaurant group will donate 500 meals to families tomorrow as part of a pledge to feed the less fortunate throughout the year.

Take Five Limited will cook and deliver Easter-themed meals to the Seventh Day Adventist Church of Bermuda, which will give the meals to the homeless and families in need through their food bank programme.

Meisha Easton, the human resources manager for Take Five, said: “We realise that a lot of people still aren’t working and groceries are very expensive, so we just want to contribute.”

She added: “Our industry has been hardest hit by this, so we really want to give back in some way, shape or form to others who are in need.”

The donation is part of their pledge to donate 2,000 meals to families who have struggled financially because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ms Easton said that the group would visit several Seventh Day Adventist churches across the island for church volunteers to distribute.

She added that church staff had earlier requested a certain number of meals based on the level of need in their area.

Ms Easton said: “After we deliver to the church they’ll be the one to do the distribution.

“We’re helping make sure they have adequate food for whoever they usually would feed, whether that’s the homeless or a family in need or just a family that’s been devastated by Covid-19.”

Take Five Catering operates five restaurants, including Buzz, Devil’s Isle and Village Pantry.

Ms Easton said that Take Five has worked with several charities in the past and opened their pantries to the Seventh Day Adventist Church when the coronavirus reached the island last year.

She added that the company delivered 500 meals for Christmas last year in collaboration with the church and were inspired to offer a similar benefit for 2021.

Ms Easton said that Take Five would offer meals on a quarterly basis, with the next 500 being offered around Cup Match.

She added that Liberty Specialty Markets Bermuda had sponsored the Easter meal giveaway and the company was in the process of collecting more sponsors.
