Chicken meat donated to hurricane victims
Following the onslaught of Hurricane Dean, the Jamaica
Broilers Group is lending a helping in providing food to those in need.
The company will supply approximately 3,000 pounds (1,360 kg) of Best Dressed Chicken
to assist with the Old Harbour Bay
Baptist Church feeding programme. This initiative currently provides at least
one hot meal per day to approximately 200 displaced and needy persons in Old
According to David Radlein, marketing manager of Best Dressed Foods, Best
Dressed Chicken will donate to the church 45 kg, or 100 lbs, of the protein each
day. This will continue for one week, but may extend to four weeks.
Because the church is without electricity, the company has also made
arrangements for the daily pick-up of the chicken from cold storage facilities.
The distribution of the cooked chicken would be closely monitored to "ensure
that the genuine needs of the residents are met".
