Outside the Bowl - Feeding the Hungry

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit • Mexico

Outside the Bowl (Fuera del Tazon) is a non-profit organization that seeks to fight hunger and malnutrition amongst children and other vulnerable groups of impoverished communities in Mexico.

Through feeding and educational programs, we strive to nourish beyond just meals.

Daily, we cook and deliver freshly made meals prepared with local ingredients authentic to the people we serve.

Our partners receive the meals and carry out the feeding programs.

They serve each person with much devotion, with the purpose to love and care for each person found - outside the bowl.

Through other partnerships we have also developed educational programs regarding nutrition and health awareness.

Each partner feeding program is asked to participate in at least one of our nutrition educational programs throughout the year.

We provide tools and encouragement to pursue and prefer healthy eating habits.

Our seventh super kitchen started operations in Puerto Vallarta in July 2016.

We currently serve 1,400 meals per week and have supported 14 different feeding programs, but we have capacity for much, much more!

How You Can Help

Join our "Sponsor a Meal" program. For a small monthly commitment, you can ensure a child will receive a hot, nutritious and delicious meal.  

A variety of hot meals will be delivered to one of our partner organizations and served to a child in need.

You can choose one of our monthly commitment opportunities:

$24 US  monthly  =  50 meals  (600 per year)
$48 US  monthly  =  100 meals (1,200 per year)
$96 US  monthly  =  200 meals (2,300 per year)
$129 US monthly  =  270 meals (3,100 per year)

Becoming a Sponsor

Your sponsorship contribution guarantees a daily meal for a child within one of our feeding programs.

Our goal is to be able to cover the cost of  meals for every single one of the children in our community feeding programs.

One time donations are welcome. Tax deductible donations are available.

There are those who say she was a normal woman, no so beautiful with a not so good body and that she worked as a nanny until she fell into alcoholism, which made her homeless, as so many other people in Tijuana.
