Feeding of the Five Thousand (5000) Outreach Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help to change the world by changing individual lives. We all know the importance of food to human survival and we all know for a fact that there are many persons here in our island, Jamaica, that go to bed hungry every night. Feeding of the Five Thousand (5000) was founded by Jordan Bennett at the age of 17, as he had a deep desire for helping needy persons. In the year 2007, from a survey conducted in Jamaica, poverty was at 14.3%. The last Jamaican Survey of Living Conditions (JSLC) conducted between July 2008 and February 2009 shows that 16.5% of Jamaicans are below poverty level. The level of poverty in the country continues to rise each and every year and there are many persons who go to bed each night on a hungry stomach.

It was not long before he too had a desire to tend to those in need. The son of producer ‘Mikey Bennett’ and brother, recording artiste ‘Nicky B’, soon heeded to his calling, which was to serve the less fortunate. Several dreams, compassion, faith in his Christian upbringing and simply love, soon saw the manifestation of his desire, as while attending the Kingsway High School he sold JMD $20,000.00 worth of sweets to assist fellow students with graduation expenses. After conversing with friends and relatives in April 2012, the seventeen-year old launched the Feeding of the 5000 (renamed to the Feeding of the 5000 Outreach Foundation (Limited) when it was registered).
