Come Saturday, October 16, as Barbados and the rest of the world prepare to observe World Food Day, the Ministry of Agriculture will hold a 5K walk and breakfast, along with a food drive to celebrate this important day.
Under the theme: "United Against Hunger", the walk will begin at 6:00 a.m. sharp at the Bay Street Esplanade, St. Michael and breakfast will be provided at the end of the exercise.
Persons interested in participating in this event have from Monday, October 11 to Friday, October 15 to register at either the Ministry of Agriculture’s headquarters, Graeme Hall, Christ Church, or the Animal Nutrition Unit, The Pine, St. Michael, as individuals will not be allowed to register on the same morning.
In addition, participants are asked to bring canned food items for donation to the drive.
Further information may be obtained from Dr. Dennis Blackman or Mr. Jerry King at the Ministry of Agriculture at telephone numbers: 434-5076/5079. firstname.lastname@example.org
