Feed the Hungry San Miguel is committed to improving the health and well-being of the children of San Miguel de Allende by alleviating hunger through school meals, family nutrition education, and community development programs.
About This Cause
Established in 1984, Feed the Hungry San Miguel (FTHSM) is an independent non-governmental and not-for-profit organization dedicated to fostering better childhood nutrition in the greater San Miguel de Allende (SMA) municipality in central Mexico.
• Feed the Hungry San Miguel, Inc. is a USA registered charitable corporation that sets policy and raises funds to maintain the operating program.
• Feed the Hungry A.C. is a Mexican registered charitable company that manages the operating program. Donations are tax deductible for U.S., Mexico and Canada (through our partnership with Amistad Canada).
We fill a gap in Mexican social services by providing hot nutritious meals and nutritional education to children in schools in the greater San Miguel de Allende area when requested by a community.
SPECIAL COVID-19 “FEED THE FAMILIES” EMERGENCY OPERATION
Immediately after the Public Secretariat of Education announced the closing of public schools (and kitchens) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Feed the Hungry operations team retooled all its activity to distribute food to the families of the children who we normally serve.
It is uncertain when this program will end, but until we are able to resume the school meals program—or we simply run out of funds—we remain committed to providing bags of food for as many as 4,000 families. In addition to the 36 communities
typically supported by FtH, the program has expanded to reach beneficiaries of other NGOs, such as Centro Infantil de los Angeles, Casita Linda, So Others May Eat, Mujeres En Cambio, Ed Caminos, and 9 other NGOs and colonias that have identified families in need in the urban San Miguel area.
The program is estimated to benefit up to 20,000 people. The average monthly increase of food cost to run this operation is $100,000 USD.
All Fundraising efforts will be directed to support the Feed the Families program and expand the Early Childhood Nutrition Program in 2021.
Note: There is a Feed the Hungry organization based in the USA; it is a multinational (except Mexico) religious organization with the same general goal of feeding children. Feed the Hungry San Miguel has no affiliation with that organization.
