Help Survivors in the Caribbean
Overcome Food Insecurity

Food insecurity is an ongoing issue in the Caribbean nations of Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. It is especially acute for survivors of domestic abuse and violence.

In keeping with Hopefull Handbags, Nonprofit goal to help survivors get back on their feet, the Hopefull Handbags Caribbean affiliate is working on projects to combat food insecurity. These initiatives include:

  • Partnering with supermarkets in Trinidad and Tobago to distribute excess food to survivors and others in need.
  • Establishing aquaponic and conventional farms in Barbados that will allow survivors to grow food and provide for themselves and their families long term.
