Havana-based fashion startup Dador, created in 2018 by Lauren Fajardo, Ilse Antón and Raquel Janero is promoting food delivery app Mandao’s healthy food baskets, for delivery to families in Cuba. Co-founded by Cuban entrepreneur Marta Deus, Mandao’s baskets provide healthy, locally produced food delivery to people in Cuba.
Thanks to this effort, those of us in the United States (and around the world) can order food baskets online, for delivery to friends and family on the island. It is trusted and transparent; direct from farms and small businesses to a family in Cuba. Your purchase supports not only the recipient of the basket but also helps small independent businesses to survive. This includes the farm, the driver and the delivery service. They all benefit at a time when promoting local food growth and ensuring that families receive nutrition is of utmost importance.
These healthy food Baskets cost $50 and will help a family eat nutritious fruit, vegetables, meat and yogurt. Each basket includes 10 pork burgers (made with 100% pork, white wine, pepper, garlic and salt) or a variety of 30 croquettes, 1 liter of yogurt, bananas, mango, guava, lemons, squash, yams, peppers, okra and cucumber. Fruits and vegetables vary with the season.
All of the items are locally sourced on the island. Chicken is available at times, so if the receiving family has dietary restrictions, please inquire. You can order for delivery to any family or a specific person if you’d like; Dador specifies how to do this on their website. Home delivery is only available in Havana at this time. Dador is also accepting larger tax-deductible donations via a 501c3 partnership with Sundial Initiative, Inc.
