Announcing “Autumn Magic” 2019

Helping others is the #1 way to a happy heart. Why not do so in the #1 city in the world? Most visitors don’t get to go “behind the walls” for a look at the real San Miguel de Allende. But now you can experience San Miguel as an insider, not a tourist.

Feed the Hungry San Miguel is pleased to offer a very exclusive excursion: an unforgettable seven days in the city voted “Best City in the World” in 2017 and 2018 by Travel+Leisure, and declared American Capital of Culture 2019 by the International Bureau of Cultural Capitals.

While feasting on the rich sights, sounds, and traditions of our stunning city, you will also be contributing to the health and future of children in San Miguel’s poorest communities.

Your week will be filled with culture, history, music, and phenomenal food—the colors and flavors of this stunning colonial gem, designated a World Heritage of Humanity site by UNESCO. Plus, we’ll venture out to the countryside to visit a Feed the Hungry school kitchen and meet some of the children helped by our program.

Every school day, more than 4,500 children in 36 communities get a hot, well-balanced meal thanks to Feed the Hungry San Miguel. We also provide food to seven local charities. Your visit will enable us to continue this work and to expand our programs to feed some of the thousands more that are waiting for help.

This year’s excursion will benefit the school kitchen in the community of Alonso Yáñez, 18 km from centro San Miguel, where 198 kindergarten and elementary students receive a hot, nutritious lunch every school day (36,600 meals per year). Learn about the community and our progress there.

“Thank you and the wonderful folks at Feed the Hungry for the great work and service you provide to the very needy young children in San Miguel. We are honored to be a part of this family as contributors and look forward to doing what we can to assist you. Our visit was an eye-opener in many ways. The gracious hosting of so many events provided us with an education and an opportunity to visit with those involved in this mission. Thank you to those wonderful folks who opened up their homes to us and hosted the dinners and cocktail hours. We’ll never forget this experience or the people and children we met.”

“Thank you for an experience we will never forget. We saw places we would never have seen if we had come by ourselves. We especially loved visiting the school. Staying in private homes added so much to the trip. The food was amazing and you found such beautiful venues. We are so impressed with Feed the Hungry and the work you have done.”
