Fish Sanibel keeps the island community healthy – in many different ways. First of all the service organizations provides different services to the community:
- Volunteer Opportunities
- Food Programs
- Senior Services
- Helping hands – Financial Assistance
But the Fish Sanibel is also a great opportunity to be socially integrated and contribute to the well-being of the island. Let’s take a look at volunteer opportunities first. The organization`s assistant executive director Maria Espinoza has an idea for everyone to get involved!
Food programs are an important part of Sanibel Fish`s services. Healthy Lifestyle Florida has the opportunity to visit fish and learn about the different types of programs. Espinoza and her team created some very practical and bonding ideas on how to improve family’s eating habits at home.
Healthy Meals For Families on Sanibel Island
FISH Sanibel Food Pantry
Sanibel fish`s Board chair Sheridan Snell invited us to visit the organization’s food pantry. During our visit the team was busy helping island seniors to get signed up for the local vaccination opportunities. The reason is that not all islanders are able to travel to Fort Myers for their appointments. Therefore, FISH decided that the vaccinations had to come to the island!
