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 Harbour Bay.
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”.
