A food programme launched in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic has doubled its meal output to 1,000 a day to meet demand.

The Loren at Pink Beach, backed by Butterfield Bank, has prepared more than 12,000 meals for seniors and other vulnerable members of the public since the start of the month.

Stephen King, the owner and developer of The Loren Hotel Group, said yesterday that the programme would be expanded and extended until Bermuda Day.

Mr King added: “Bermuda is a very special island for its beauty and its community. We are fortunate that our partners in the private sector and the church community have come quickly together to help support the vulnerable.

“This is an incredibly challenging time for tourism, other industries and all the people of the island, but I am sure Bermuda will remain a prominent tourist and business destination as the recovery unfolds.”
