Hurricane Maria made us aware of the deep need for food in our community. Thanks to GlobalGiving we were able to start addressing that need in 2017. Today in 2019 we want to continue improving the quality of life of our community. We want to provide our youth with the best tools to continue being a model of resilience and sustainability.
About the project, our students say:
“There are students who do not have money to buy food. Some even hoped to take away the leftover food in the dining room to have for dinner.”
“Food service is super important for me. In my house my family cooks in small portions and there is nothing left that I can take with me the next day.”
Thanks to the contributions of GlobalGiving, when we reach the financial goal of the project:
We can improve the feeding quality of 246 active students.
We can serve more than 350 daily food dishes, which mean 63,000 annual hot food dishes.
We will have the capacity to function as a first response center for 150 people. They will have access to electricity, communications and will receive at least one hot meal per day.
This month, we are honored and grateful for the visit of the Director of Business Partnerships and Director of Disaster Recovery Network, Donna Callejón, and Senior Associate and Grant Management, Chase Williams of GlobalGiving .
