By Aaron Humes: This evening philanthropist Joel ‘Dara’ Robinson informed that his successful feeding program is for now another victim of economic reality in the age of COVID-19.

Started more than a decade ago on Dunn Street, King’s Park, it fed hundreds of children daily during the school year on the strength of fundraising twice-yearly by open concerts dedicated to Robinson’s reggae idols Bob Marley and Lucky Dube, and more recently the Ride for Hunger in honour of slain journalist Kareem Clarke.

But COVID restrictions put a halt to all that and Robinson told his backers to stand down a few weeks ago.

For now, Robinson is concentrating on farming in the backlands of the Belize District. However, as BBN reported earlier, Robinson has run into some issues with this initiative.
