Xtra Foods Supermarket has donated $50,000 worth of food vouchers to the Chaguanas Borough Council, which will go towards helping the neediest citizens in the Borough.

Receiving the donation on Thursday was Chaguanas Mayor Her Worship Vandana Mohit.

Spokesman for Xtra Foods, Daniel Austin, said the grocery partnered with the Mayor’s Office to ensure that the vouchers would go to the “neediest of the needy”.

Mayor Mohit said each of the eight Council members would be given 60 vouchers, which would be distributed to a specific list of persons, who have been identified for such assistance.
