Since April 2020, our Feed the Families Emergency Response program has been delivering critical food supplies to thousands of desperate families throughout the San Miguel de Allende municipality.
The food packages are designed to feed entire families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fallout. FTH is the only NGO in this part of Mexico capable of purchasing, packaging, and distributing food for the 20,000 people we have been helping.
As of the end of May 2021, 109,485 food bags—ingredients for 10.8 million meals—have been distributed, helping 3,285 families avoid starvation.
There is no vaccine against poverty. It will take a long time for devastated families and communities to overcome their losses. The program will continue as long as there is a need, and as long as resources allow. This is only possible thanks to our generous donors, our incredibly hard working staff, operational direction and moral support by our board of trustees, and help from the San Miguel de Allende Dirección de Cultura y Tradiciones.
