Help feed hungry families in Guatemalan Highlands

Nutritious and delicious
Nutritious and delicious

During the time of COVID-19 restrictions, Mayan households in the Guatemalan highlands have been struggling more than normal as they try to feed their families. When incomes become extremely restricted, families will use the small amount of money they have to purchase corn for tortillas. They will often only add salt. This meal is lacking in the vitamins, minerals and complete protien ones body needs to stay healthy and to successfully fight the pandemic.

We have been fortunate to have received donations that have allowed us to suppliment the diet with rice, beans, oil, eggs as well as fruits and vegetables. Many of these fruits and vegetables have come from our organic garden. The university students are virtually learning at present and have been volunteering in our garden and greenhouse. These students love helping to support hunger relief and food security. As travel between villages has been restricted we have partnered to help other organizations to deliver food to families in Chuk Muk, Guatemala.
