Food for Life Mexico was supported by Food for Life Global with a grant last year to respond to the massive earthquake that hit the city. Thousands of vegan meals were served during those chaotic weeks following the devastation and they received praise from the local Red Cross agency that told them that their meals were the best of all humanitarian agencies.
Fast forward to 2018, and the newly created team has expanded its efforts and is providing hundreds of meals weekly. They recently provided 400 meals to patients at the Trajimos Hospital.
“We are serving our patients what they request,” explained program manager Annapurna dasi. “Of course, every meal is vegan and today we served oatmeal porridge, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fresh fruit (mango and bananas).”
