Community Kitchens in Mexico City Are Feeding Over 44,000 People Daily

Community Kitchens are social services focused on meeting the food needs of the homeless and poor in Mexico City (El Universal)

The government of Mexico City serves more than 44,000 people a day in community kitchens located in different parts of the capital, which operate under the coordination of the Ministry of Social Development.

In order to fulfill the city’s program of right to food being a human right, the nutritional balance of the portions offered in the 330 dining rooms are managed by Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM).

From 2014 to date, the daily average of food rations that are distributed in the dining rooms of the 16 delegations increased by 40 percent, with 80 percent being women.

In addition, because of the increase in the budget of the program, dining rooms have had an exponential growth in 2016, when the budget was increased 252%, an amount of more than 166 million pesos.

...A key element to keeping costs low in the program was the agreement reached earlier this year with suppliers to maintain costs of food that is prepared for community eaters.

Community Kitchens are social services focused on meeting the food needs of the homeless and poor in Mexico City by providing healthy hot meals throughout the city. The primary goal is to lessen the poverty and despair among the homeless in the city and to restore dignity and self-reliance to those we serve.
