Annual “Back to School” Fundraiser Now Benefits Entire Families.

Please consider donating to Feed the Hungry’s Emergency Response Program to feed families in San Miguel de Allende.

We are fundraising to feed families affected by Covid-19

During these unprecedented times, we have all had to make many adjustments to our lives. While it is very likely that we will get back to our normal routines, this will not be the case for many of the more than 4,000 children we feed in our school kitchens—or for their families.  At this time of the year, we would typically fund-raise to welcome thousands of children back to school. We don’t know when we would be able to reopen our kitchens this year. Although the municipality is allowing limited commerce to resume operations, unemployment is still widespread and it is uncertain when our local economy will fully recover.

What we do know is that we cannot abandon these families. Therefore, we will continue our Feed the Families special emergency response program, which started in March. By the end of August, we will have provided food for nearly 5 million meals to needy families during this five-month period.

When school re-openings are announced by the Public Education System, we will gear up to resume the school meals program. Running these two programs simultaneously will pose many logistical problems and a heavy strain on our already tight budget. In our 35 years of operations, we have never been so tested – and never so motivated to rise to the challenge.

Please help by continuing your support. Here is a short video which expresses their gratitude.

Thank you – we couldn’t do this without you!
