Food for Families - Bucerias Relief

We are urgently requesting your help to feed families in desperate need in Bucerias, Mexico.
We are two Canadians living in Mexico full time for the last 5 years. Using the resources of our company Banderas Bay Carts, we are raising money to provide weekly food hampers to families severely affected by the Covid 19 reality. People who were already scraping by on tiny daily wages now have no way to provide food for their children as they are no longer able to work. 

In our community, many people don’t have stocked pantries, full freezers or emergency funds. Many don’t even own a fridge. To be told to stay home for a month, or even a week, is not possible. To be out of work for months, is devastating. The threat of contracting an unseen virus seems much less scary than the threat of watching your children starve. People here are scared, and it is not of Covid-19. The government is unable to provide any support for these families who are not in the government system.

With help from gracious donations, we have been busy delivering food to our neighbourhood - as of the launch of this campaign, we have already given out 150  hampers of food in under two weeks! Each hamper costs $20 Canadian and can feed a family up to a week. Hampers include essentials like beans, rice, pasta, milk, tuna, produce, and a whole chicken.

With your gracious donation, you will be a part of what we are trying to be down here – a refuge of hope in a place of brokenness.  Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated.
