CaribSplash Youth Development
One of our goals is to provide educational materials (eg. books to libraries of impoverished schools) and sporting equipment (eg. cricket and soccer) to children in need. We acknowledge the importance of nutrition in today’s youth and have created a school feeding program ensuring students can take advantage of the academic and recreational atmosphere created.
As part of CaribSplash’s school feeding program, we’ve partnered with Tastee, a Jamaican-based restaurant with a strong commitment to the community. Our effort keep kids strong, healthy and prepared to learn. The program ensures that students at the Melrose Primary and Junior High, Jamaica will receive meal vouchers. Students can use those vouchers to choose meals off the Tastee menu, so they’re not only getting food they like, they’re also getting complete, nutritious meals.
