Who Are We?
We are a group of people dedicated to providing food and improving the lives of the very poor and marginalized people of the village of San Juan Cosala, Jalisco, Mexico. We provide weekly food despensas for those who would go hungry without our aid. Many of our recipients are elderly, disabled, and children who are hungry. We also support new program initiatives to involve the people in developing additional income sources and skills (such as English), thereby offering them a "hand up" and not just a "hand out". Our goal is to help these people live productive lives, free from hunger. Finally, although we don't provide monetary support, we do participation in other initiatives in San Juan Cosala, such as the Token Store and the music program to help increase the dreams of the people of San Juan Cosala.
In the early 2000s, a Board of Directors was established to manage the Operation Feed program. The Board is staffed by volunteers. Voted in as Board Members and Project Leaders for 2018:
