Supermarket Assoc. launches ‘ Food Drive for Frontliners’ – 100 meals daily

The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SATT) is set to launch of The SATT Food Drive for Frontliners 2021 Edition.

The Association said it recognizes that prior to this state of emergency (SoE), Frontliners at the Couva and Caura Health Facilities were in dire straits of regular meals.

“The parallel healthcare system currently, as well as the actual healthcare system, is extremely overwhelmed beyond belief.”
As the number of cases have risen and deaths climbed, our Frontliners have bravely and silently trudged on; SATT
supports an obligation to, once again, take care of their nutritional health as access to meals remain limited at this time.
SATT said it acknowledges all staff at both Couva and Caura as Frontliners, as the virus places no distinction on the recognition as such.
Therefore, they have launch its 3rd consecutive Food Drive during the period of the pandemic.
One hundred (100) meals will be allocated daily to Couva – Caura to follow soon – every day for a minimum of three (3) weeks.
This giant gesture of service to Frontline staff was made possible by collaborators and sponsors including Nu Iron Unlimited, Point Lisas Nitrogen Limited, Scotiabank, S&S Persad Supermarkets and The Supermarket Association of Trinidad and Tobago.
”SATT recognizes that our Frontliners represent our last line of defense. We urge our citizens to heed the call during this SoE to flatten the curve and give them a fighting chance. We will continue to commit to our Frontliners, as we consistently set the bar as standard bearers for Corporate Social Responsibility.”
This is the second initiative for Frontline workers announced by SATT during the month of May.
Two (2) weeks ago, the Association launched its Priority Access for Frontline staff, where essential personnel with institutional Identification (doctors, nurses and protective services) are given priority access at member stores to facilitate their shopping.
