Thank You Mary Katherine and Charles
In 2018, Comunidad Connect began the Food For Good program as a humanitarian response to food insecurity in Los Robles, Nicaragua. In March of 2019, you both began to support the program with monthly donations.
As of September 2022, Food For Good has prepared and delivered almost 8,000 meals to community seniors with little or no support system. Without the meals, these residents would become extremely food insecure.
In addition, this program generates income for a Brigadista (community health volunteer) who cooks and delivers these daily meals.
Meals Delivered Since 2018
The Food For Good program also provides a monthly “basic basket” of food and hygiene supplies to a single mother of 5 named Concepcion Aguilar Mesa. This basket includes items such as rice, beans, oil, salt, sugar, eggs, pasta, soap, toilet paper and more. Comunidad Connect built Concepcion and her family a home in 2019. See below for a powerful moment recorded two years after the project was completed.
