Exceptional Turnout for Community Feeding

Nina Webb felt that, with everything that went on in 2020, Bermudians have drifted away from one another.

“Last year made Bermudians lose a bit of our humanity and social culture that makes us us,” Ms. Webb said. “We have become scared to speak to each other for whatever reason.”
She believes that hope and fellowship will get the island through these times more than fear and divisiveness.

Thus, Ms. Webb and some family members and friends held a drive-by feeding on Sunday, January 10th to try and bring the community more together.

The feeding was first advertised through Ms. Webb’s social media, word spread very quickly, with some people reaching out to her with donations as soon as the message was sent out.

Some people donated water, some donated baked goods and Country Kitchen arrived with food containers, others donated chicken, rice and five pans full of macaroni and cheese.

Over 600 plates of food we served today as Ms. Webb being a little overwhelmed by the exceptional turnout.

“When I put the message out, I knew that it would reach people within my village, but to know that it reached [so many people] outside of my village, I was so humbled and grateful,” she said.

Ms. Webb, a former police cadet and officer, believes that service and giving back is one of the most important things that people can teach their children in this day and age.
“There is nothing more important to me than being of service to others,” she said. “You wake up everyday knowing that you are God’s servant.”

Any money that was received at the feeding will be given either to a charity or family in need on the island. Bermuda thank you for your support and buy in to this need.
