A total of 4,100 households are receiving food support from the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services for the Christmas season.
The Ministry says they are among vulnerable families who are experiencing hardship and are unable to fully provide for the nutritional needs of their respective families.
It says this is in keeping with the spirit of caring and giving that the season of Christmas represents.
The distributions will continue until December 22, 2017 at various locations across Trinidad and Tobago.
The Ministry of Social Development and Family Services says it held its first children’s Christmas party for the children of staff members and also children associated with the Cerebral Palsy Society and the Blind Welfare Association of Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday.
The event was held at the Ministry’s Inter-Disciplinary Child Development Centre in Couva.
