The malnutrition of children is the consequence of multiple factors that go from the modification of the local diet, to the lack of economic resources that allow them to access healthy food. The School Food Circle seeks to modify the current environment, promoting comprehensive actions according to the socioeconomic and cultural context, promoting food governance and placing the right to food in the hands of local producers. Through the GlobalGiving donation, more than 100 girls and boys from Altos de Chiapas have increased their opportunities to access healthy and quality food, through support for families. Today more than ever, having a donation makes a difference, allowing girls and boys to reduce their vulnerability, giving them greater opportunities to improve their quality of life and that of their families.
The project contemplates the participation of 130 girls and boys from two localities, involving four educational centers. The mechanism considers the purchase of local inputs from the producers, their collection and distribution to the school, the preparation of food by the cooks and the provision to the students.
Due to the contingency due to COVID-19, its operation was modified in order not to suspend support for families, particularly due to the rise in the prices of basic products that occurred in the municipalities.
As a result, 137 children from the towns of San Fernando, municipality of Pantelhó and Río Tanate’el, municipality of San Juan Cancuc, have benefited, corresponding to 86 families, 41 cooks and 43 producers and producers.
Your donation has contributed to support girls and boys in schools and in the future expand the program in other places.
The Fiestas del Buen Comer constitute the mechanism through which food is provided to school children, for which various activities are carried out coordinated by the food, education and cook committees. As a result, 177 girls and boys from the towns of San Fernando, municipality of Pantelhó and Río Tanate’el, municipality of San Juan Cancuc, benefited from 86 families, 41 cooks and 43 producers and producers. Your donation has contributed to support girls and boys in schools and in the future expand the program in other places.

Through the donation of GlobalGiving 130 girls and boys from Altos of Chiapas have increased their opportunities for access to healthy and quality food, through the School Food Circles, which at the same time generate economic income for families because the purchase takes place in the same location.This contributes to increasing nutrition rates to increase school performance.
Having your donation is very important because it allows us to continue providing food in schools and in the future expand the program in other locations. Your help helps reduce the food poverty of indigenous children, giving them greater opportunities to improve their quality of life and those of their families.
