Cayman Islands Fire Service hosts Meals on Wheels cook off
Created : 20 July 2020
Supporting our community is the number one priority of the Cayman Islands Fire Service, so when the COVID-19 pandemic began to impact the most vulnerable in the Cayman community, fire officers volunteered with Meals on Wheels to provide hot food to people in need.
Last Friday, over 50 meals were cooked and prepared at Central Fire Station to support Meals on Wheels efforts. Meals on Wheels has been providing over 1,000 hot soups and lunch meals each day to the most vulnerable members of the community: seniors, infirm, disabled and homebound and has seen increases in demand during the pandemic.
The Department of Environmental Health and Cayman Islands Government provided food handling safety training prior to Friday’s cook off.
The fire service also recently hosted a car wash in support of two families on island with young daughters bravely battling cancer. The money raised went towards covering the costs of their medical bills.
