I would like to say thank you for the opportunity to table at the 'EXPRESSIONS' Caribbean-American Exhibition/Trade Show. This was FFP’s first tabling with Expressions and I’m sure it won’t be our last. I had the pleasure of meeting many vendors and tabled next to AmeriJet an organization that did business with FFP years ago who still remembers FFP and the relationship we shared. The event was a great networking portal for vendors exhibiting his and her business products and we got a chance to share with each other. I was able to connect with groups and established relationships that will help our organizations reach mutual goals. I look forward to the next event by Unique Creations by Liz, Inc. commented Sandra Devoe –Thomas, Food for the Poor, Inc.
