The final destination of 396,838,000 pesos (US$26.5 million) which was to be used for the National Crusade Against Hunger, to distribute 31 million articles, such as bandannas, tortilla holders, t-shirts, balloons, cups and caps is unknown. The businesses which were supposedly were to acquire them do not exist, said the Senior Auditor of the Federation.

The objects did not arrive at the state offices of the agency, and even the director of the general warehouse of the Ministry of Social Development, is unaware of their existence. The Auditor suspects damages to the treasury, as there is no evidence of the acquisition, distribution and delivery of the items to 400 municipalities. There are acts and omissions from public servant who do not supervise, verify nor validate the work, added the general report of the public accounts for 2013.

The Autonomous State University of Morelos, with which the Ministry of Social Development signed an agreement to purchase and distribute the equipment and materials to support promoters of the Route Without Hunger, illegally split the procedures for the acquisition of the items into two parts.
