Mexico's president Enrique Pena Nieto expects to provide food supplies to 5 million people living in extreme poverty in 2014, he said this week.

Pena Nieto was handing out benefits to the inhabitants of the Guachochi municipality in northern state Chihuahua, one of the poorest regions in Mexico, where at least six different ethnic groups live.

The current government is dedicating June to evaluate and offer results about the National Crusade Against Hunger, one of the most important programs in Mexican social policy.

“A year and a half after starting this program, we have significant advances: 3 million Mexicans, of those 7.5 million who were in poverty in 2012 have guaranteed their food supply,” said Pena Nieto. “Our goal in 2014 is to go from 3 million to 5.5 million of benefits.”

He said the Mexican government is spending more than US$26 billion on social policies in 2014.
