Facebook food-vending is the next big thing

By BBN Staff: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought numerous challenges to people around the world and in Belize.

With a major hit to the tourism industry, Belizeans are seeking new ways of bringing in income for the survival of their families.

There is no set date for the re-opening of the international airport or of the borders, posing a major set back for economic activity in Belize.

Though, there has been a gradual increase in some economic activity with the re-opening of stores and other businesses in the country, though thousands of Belizeans remain unemployed.

Many people are seeking and implementing creative ways of bringing in income.

But, is Facebook food sales the next big thing?

As of May 29, the Government informed that 94% of the 43,726 applicants for the unemployment relief program had received payments.

The applications were closed in late April after the portal received over 81, 000 applications.

Due to this, there has been an increase of marketing on social media for food sales from home.

Included in that list is wings, stuffed jalapenos, burgers, chicken fingers, tamales and some people have began to sell fruits, vegetables and other home-made juices and drinks online.

Some of the pages we found are: Baking Online, Whipped Cafe, Dilan Cassanova, Mimitha Rivera,Chef Nolvin Catalan Flora’s Kitchen and The Cooling Rack.

Undoubtedly, supporting local is the way to go in this crucial time. Purchasing food (if you can) from those near you and supporting them by a Facebook share is also helping to get the word out.

We do not know how long this will last, but we know that if we have each other and can find support in surviving, we will overcome this 2020 pandemic.
