Summary

Food is part of our identity as Mexicans. Our flavors remind us of our profound culture, history and traditions that we as Mexicans share with each other. In San Luis Potosi, Mexico, Fundacion Nutriendo has worked with low-income communities by bringing nutritious breakfasts to marginalized children for more than 20 years. We currently serve 1,500 breakfasts daily to low-resource pre-schools through our health and nutritional programs.

Challenge

The main problem is malnutrition in Mexico and the effects that this causes in our children: 85% of the brain develops from 0 - 5 years. The main factors that could impede the full development of the brain are: poor nutrition, lack of stimulation, and lack of affection. This situation of vulnerability in which our children find themselves is aggravated by the lack of a strong sense of community that causes feelings of rejection and hopelessness for our unfortunate children.

Solution

In the short term, our goal is to serve an additional kindergarten that would have a fruitful impact on more than 100 children. Mothers from the community will help serve breakfasts, and commit to the program to learn hygiene habits and nutritious recipes through parent workshops. We will also perform medical evaluations along with pediatric follow-ups for children who have health problems, which will enable us to start a collaborative effort focused on the welfare of the community.

Long-Term Impact

Fundacion Nutriendo will provide nutritious breakfasts daily to 100 children.Our goals: an increase in the academic level of the children, a decrease in dropouts, a decrease in diseases rate.Through our workshops, parents will continue to be committed to the education, health, and well-being of their children. Furthermore, in pursuit of our goal to continue to improve low-income communities, will foster the community to improve their pre-school installations that will aid childhood development.
