Emergency Relief for families affected by COVID-19

On March 16, 2020, our Colombian President announced all schools with in the country will close until further notice.  At Restaurants On Mission we operate a (non-profit) school cafeteria in Medellin, Colombia.  We are in unique position where we are able to operate our cafeteria in isolation.  Our plan is to keep our cafeteria kitchen operational as we distribute meals to local families who will be significantly impacted by job and school closures.  

Many families in the city of Medellin rely on the nutrition of school lunches to survive.  Additionally, there are now thousands of families who no longer have employment or other means of providing for their family.  We need your help and are asking for you to donate what you can.  We are able maintain operations and distribute meals to these families.  Please keep in mind that Colombia does not have a credit system and when emergency situations like this arise individuals living on minimum wage (about $200/mo) or below are impacted the hardest.  

2021 update: 
In 2020 we were able to provide over 250,000 meals, over 60 tons of food, to families significantly impacted by the Pandemic quarantines.  At the end of the year, this project was paused because the country was reducing restrictions and people were able to go back to work. Unfornatuley, we see the need to once again start providing meal packets to families who continue to be impacted by economic closures.  Currently Medellin is experiencing a second wave of the virus and hospitals are at a 98% capacity, with depleting oxygen supply level.  Since mid-March the country has been on a rotation quarantine schedule where businesses are able to operate Monday-Thursday but the weekends are spent in total lockdown.

For $20 we are able to feed a family of 4 for a week.

Thank you for your help!
