MÁRTIR DE CUILAPAN, Guerrero – The National Crusade Against Hunger is back after being put on hold during election season.

President Enrique Peña Nieto conceded that the program had been suspended because “we didn’t want to encourage the idea that social work is linked to electoral work.” He said that the government would make up for lost time, adding that “we can realistically reach our target for this year, which is to visit at least 80 of the 400 municipalities that form part of the program.”

An estimated 7.5 million Mexicans live in hunger. The crusade aims to reach out to these people by taking them food supplies as well as educating them on healthy and sustainable diets. The crusade is a federal program that is supported by a number of food producers.
