You have helped fuel the work of the Banco de Alimentos Caritas Puebla, through the highs and lows, you’ve helped us accomplish so much this past months. We’ve seen many people ask for food aid at food bank, but we’ve also seen volunteers and donors enthusiastically come forward to help our mision

After almost 19 months since the pandemic started and now that there is already vaccination in a large part of the population, we should be experiencing a post-contingency and it is not like that, there are new strains of the coronavirus, a new wave of infections is already present in very Young people and children and our local authorities once again reduced the capacity of businesses, bars, restaurants, which were just beginning to recover their financial situation. A lot of people had sporadic or no pay for a long time and not all paychecks are back to normal. The pandemic reminded us that hunger exists in every community. We also know that the economic fallout from COVID-19 – ranging from job losses to heightened caregiving needs. Many people still need some help.

This crisis isn't over – thousand of people are still struggling to get enough food. As food bank we needs ongoing support from our community.

In recent months we have managed to serve more than 160,000 people weekly and that is thanks to the commitment and dedication of people like you, in this report, we want to show you a little of our work with some photographs that we have selected to share with you.

The support we provide is in two states of Mexico, we provide food support in the state of Puebla and in the state of Tlaxcala, and we have achieved it through more than 250 food delivery points and we also provide support to religious and civil institutions non-governmental. We have five dining rooms where we serve 60 people daily in each dining room at different addresses in the city of Puebla Capital.

Your help makes the difference between hunger and the hope of many people, that is why we are very grateful that you continue to trust us, we invite you to visit us on our social networks or if you want more information do not hesitate to write us, we are the the bridge to take your good deeds where they are really needed.


We want to ask you a very great favor, share our project, this great misión of fighting hunger and that we achieved thanks to people like you. The good news is also news and we believe that if we have caught up with you it is because it is good news and together we can change the lives of many families.

Finally, we invite you to participate as a recurring donor according to what your possibilities and heart desire, if possible, this ensures that we can provide the best possible help to people who are still living the question of knowing if there will be daily food. in their homes. now and in the months to come.

After a difficult year for everyone, full of uncertainties, anguish and anxiety, We still can see the pain and suffering felt in the region, many families with their pride and dignity exhausted by the loss of jobs, some of their personal stories of fighting the pandemic are heartbreaking. That is why we know that we are all in this together to be able to move forward helping families face hunger.

We are more committed than ever to rescuing and distributing food for vulnerable people. It is very important to emphasize that only with everyone's participation, we have been able to provide food support in the state of Puebla and Tlaxcala during this difficult season, The food support during 2020 has been 234 320 people attended in 243 food pantries delivery points in Puebla.

To this day, sanitary measures are still active and people are asked to stay in their homes and only go out if absolutely necessary.
After the first three months of 2021 we see hope in the vaccination process to combat COVID_19, without a doubt one less problem for everyone; but the fight against hunger is something that we have been fighting for 25 years in the region, the coronavirus aggravated this situation, leaving 30% of the population in food poverty above the people who were already in this situation.

The photographic material that we share with you is from some families that receive food support in our facilities and others are from the state of Puebla as well as in the northern highlands.

 

Together we can make such a difference for people who need a helping hand. 

Thank you,

Hello!

These times are difficult and challenging, but we know that we can get ahead with everyone's participation.
Despite the fact that most of the people returned to working life, many families still cannot be sure of having daily food in their homes.

The work we do allows us to help people who need it, but we are also the means for many people who have resources to share with the less fortunate.

The hunger pandemic already existed before the COVID-19 pandemic, the population we served with food support before COVID 19, is likely to increase by 35% in 2021.
Our work is far from over, but we believe that we have managed to move forward with the participation of a more humane society and more aware of its neighbor.

The pandemic has brought devastating hardships to so many people. Many members of our communities never expected to be in this position, struggling to put food on the table. With your help, we're doing our part to lighten their load, having served more than 500,000 food pantries this year.

Dear Friend thank you for reading this report, we invite you to share this project with you families and friends, we can do better when everybody participaties.
