What We Do

What we do

Feed the Hungry San Miguel currently supports 33 elementary school-kitchens in the greater municipality of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico, and provides foodstuff to 6 local charities that serve orphans, children with disabilities, and some elderly.

Schools we helpOur policy is to be responsive to requests from parents in a specific village and/or their school administrators. An evaluation is undertaken to assess the need (poverty level), number of students (ages 3 to 12), and its location (distance and access issues). Interviews with school directors, teachers, and parents are conducted to confirm that the prospective school qualifies for consideration. Cooperation of teachers and parents is essential to success and sustainability.

If the evaluative criteria fits Feed the Hungry’s operational model, an agreement is reached with Mexico’s Department of Education. A kitchen is then outfitted, and staffed with cooks (volunteer mothers, or hired from the community) who receive continuous training and oversight. The installations provided by Feed the Hungry remain the property of the government.
