Food Assistance

Food Assistance

The Trinidad and Tobago government has currently implemented restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. As a result, many asylum-seekers and refugees have become temporarily unemployed, leading to a great demand in food assistance. Through an online application*, individuals can receive this type of assistance. Living Water Community is distributing food using various methods including supermarkets and partnering with community organisations.

Several other parishes also offer basic food assistance as well as other welfare such as clothes. Below is a list of the parishes offering these services:
