DaraDara Robinson is making the rounds once again and he stopped by our offices on Wednesday, January 30th to ask the public to assist him in his ongoing feeding program which he runs at #6 Dunn Street in the King’s Park area of Belize City.

Dara’s feeding program asssits 40 children from primary schools in the area and in order for him to maintain the daily program, he does fund raisers. This year, on the occasion of Bob Marley’s birthday, Robinson will once again hold a food drive. He will be at the Princess Margaret tennis court from 1 to 10 p.m. where he will place a barrel for anyone to contribute non-perishable food items. These items will be used for his feeding program and whatever he is unable to use there, he distributes in the community to needy families.

Dara says that in the past he held the food drive along with the Tribute to Bob Marley but the tribute overshadows the food drive so this year he has opted to separate the events and hold the tribute on a different days and locations. He added that this year’s tribute is the 11th running and will be held on February 9th at the Banquitas House of Culture in Orange Walk starting at 8p.m. A second one will take place on February 10th at the Princess Margaret drive tennis court starting at 4 p.m. Both these events are also fund raisers for his feeding program and they will be observed under the theme “Belize Unite.”
Fittingly, Robinson says the theme was specifically chosen to ask everyone in the community to come out and help in his venture to feed children in Belize City who really need it. Anyone wishing to contribute to Dara Robinson’s cause can do so by calling him at 623-3662.
