The value of generosity in times of pandemic

Dear Donor.

We hope everything is fine with you and your beloved ones.

Be grateful is something so important to us, it is only through the support you have given us that we have managed to get out of these months of great uncertainty.

Families are returning to their daily activities to obtain their economic income and thus be able to fend for themselves, but there are still many people in need of food in Puebla. We currently provide weekly food support to a population of over 160,000 per week, our greatest concern today to continue obtaining food from our allies. The monetary donations have allowed us to buy that food that has no longer been donated and complements the food pantries that we deliver weekly to the people who receive the support.

In Puebla capital there is a population of more than six million people of which one million eight hundred thousand people lived in food poverty before the pandemic, according to CONEVAL studies it is estimated that it can increase the food poverty population by 35%.

Last but not least, we want to make you a humble invitation to participate and share our work in the largest movement of generosity that exists, #GivingTuesday, on December 1st, 2020

GlobalGiving is giving us great support to all non-profit organizations with an incentive of one million dollars, all organizations participate with our projects and we will receive a proportional part of this great incentive with each donation we receive.

Please consider telling your friends and family about our project by sharing the link to our GlobalGiving project on social media, or just bring us up in conversation. 

We share in pictures part of the work we do in the communities when delivering food pantries.

God bless you

Being together everything is possible

Dear Donor –

We hope your family and loved ones are in good health and more united than ever.

After our previous report, many experiences have happened that have demanded to give the best of each one of us in our organization. With great pride we want to share that we continue to provide food support to many families and thank God every day we have been open to all who have needed us.

In the last few months we have faced a great demand for food support from the population in Puebla; and it is unfortunate that many families for the first time met our food bank and it was out of necessity.

During the months of June, July and August we were able to provide food support to more than 170,000 people weekly, a very difficult task to fulfill and it was only possible with the generosity of people like you who had the power to share. 

We carry out food rescue from the agricultural part, for many years we have specialized in this type of rescue. During the months of July and August we faced an important challenge which was the weather, in our country those months are a hot season and that forced us to be more efficient. We had an increase in the agricultural rescue, because many export markets were closed and that the donation of this sector has increased, We believe that some producers gave their productions due to the crisis by not being able to export their food, which greatly helped to meet the needs we experienced in those months. The shortages of food such as groceries were that they were scarce and it was through donations that we were able to acquire these foods and be able to deliver them in a comprehensive way in the food pantries.

We are currently facing many changes as a society, some sectors of society are beginning to join their work activities, there is still much to do, the COVID-19 pandemic considerably increased the pandemic that we have already been fighting, which is the hunger pandemic.
We know that we need to be more united and stronger than ever, as a Food Bank our work is fundamental because in many homes there is the uncertainty of having daily food.

The help you have given us has been invaluable in these difficult times, so We reiterate our gratitude for the trust placed in our Foundation and for the great commitment to support those who need us now.

Dear Donor on behalf of the entire community of Banco de Alimentos Caritas Puebla, we want to thank you for selecting us to make your donation because thanks to this,  we can continue supporting many families in the midst of the contingency  we are facing by COVID-19.

We are also very grateful to you since with your contributions we have been able to achieve the March accelerator goal that allows us to be in this great crowdfunding community which is GlobalGiving, and  give us the opportunity to have access to more resources to help more families.

We want to share with you that during the months of March and April  we started with COVID-19 contingency. Your contribution was very important in order to continue with our mission. The need for food support increased considerably in these last months and weeks by up to 75%.
In February we attended 136,000 people weekly, but at the end of March and April, the food support that we are providing is already 158,000 people weekly, and it continues growing, all due to health emergency measures and the increase in unemployment..

The difficult times we are going through invite us to be separated to preserve our health, but at the same time we are more united than ever to work for those who need it most.

The work of the Food Bank is essential to cover food vulnerability, so we have redoubled efforts to continue fulfilling our mission. The help you have given us is invaluable in these times of emergency, for which we reiterate our gratitude for the trust placed in our Foundation and for the great commitment to support those who have the least.

May God bless you and return your generosity a thousandfold.
