Hog Wild

Apologies for tardiness with blog update. It has been a very, very busy couple of weeks here on the island and I've hardly had time to catch my breath. Sat 6th October was the second annual hog roast in aid of the Feed our future charity.
The Smokin Bros contender......
With a hog head-to-head cook off, live music, cocktails and dancing on the beach, it was well worth the money to make sure kids don't go hungry.
vs. the Hew Done hog
 From the feedourfutureayman.org website:

"A large percentage of Cayman’s teachers regularly see children who come to school hungry because they aren’t getting enough to eat at home.  Teachers are among the first line of defense for students who regularly come to school hungry and will take action in a number of ways to address the hunger they see in their classrooms or lunch halls.  The reality is that on average many teachers are spending their own money to purchase or provide meals for students in their classrooms."

"Historical data shows that a large number of children in our public schools rely on subsidised or free school meals. For many children this school meal is the only solid meal they will receive the entire day.  The statistics below show the number of children who have been assisted with school lunches for the past ten years though it has been reported that these numbers are severely understated in that many more would qualify, if they came forward and funding allowed."

Basically in this day and age, there is absolutely no reason to not feed the kids. The Caymans aren't a third world country for goodness sake but this happens every day where kids are going hungry because their parents aren't feeding them.

If you can and want to, please make a donation via the charity website at www.feedourfuturecayman.org

The Smokin Bros. hog was the eventual winner on the night. Well done!
