Food For The Poor 5k Media Launch Makes Steps Toward 100 Houses Mission

Food For The Poor held their media launch for this year's 5k Walk/Run on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at the Spanish Court Hotel.

The 100 Houses mission for this year's 5k is to raise funds for the construction of 100 houses for needy Jamaicans.

50% of the target amount will be contributed by the Food For The Poor head office in Florida, leaving a target of US$ 360,000 to be raised via the 5k event.

During the media launch, applicant stories were heard from Mr Berrus Mighty and Ms Annette Higgins, who both received commitments for the constructions of housing units, setting Food For The Poor on a path to success ahead of the third staging of the event on Saturday, May 13, 2017.

The 5k will be held at Emancipation Park, kicking off at 6:00 am with a 5:30 am warm up time.
