Banco de Alimentos de Puerto Vallarta A.C.. collects, selects and distributes perishable foods and non-perishable food to the needy in our area.
We seek to recover and take advantage of all the 100% edible food that is normally wasted.
We create awareness among producers and distributors to avoid waste, allowing us to receive the most usable products. Each food is classified and only those foods most likely to be used for human consumption are chosen.
We have a base of more than 5 thousand persons, of these 56% are beneficiaries belonging to those vulnerable groups including children and the elderly.
