Challenge

The lack of nutritional value is reflected in the prevalence of health conditions, including the widespread problem of obesity and overweight in the population of Puerto Rico that reaches 66.5%, according to data compiled by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) by 2018.

Solution

We will be providing a balanced diet to families, kids, mother's and communities in general.Also we will train the head of household in the importance of a good nutrition for the family.

Long-Term Impact

The Educational and Relief Center will provide constant education, support and training to help individuals and families to rise out of poverty. In the event of any future natural disaster, the Educational and Relief Center will be ready to help a community of 600+ families.
