In the wake of tropical cyclone (TC) Evan in 2012, Live & Learn Environmental Education in Fiji helped Vinaka Fiji, a charity that works to improve the lives of those who live on the Yasawa islands, to implement a food bank scheme in the Yasawa community. When TC Winston devastated the country again in 2016, it was the communal farming plots and the two newly built food stores in the community, established by the project in 2015, which ensured that the villages of Kese and Soso were able to sustain themselves.
