Bazar de Muelle

This is the end of another successful market season.  In total there were 7 markets and each one held its own highlight. Who stood in line to buy Anita’s sausages or the scrumptious cinnamon buns? There was always a flurry of activity around Mari’s table  or the community table where local service providers promoted their services like massages or bike rentals. Then there was the raffle tickets that everyone bought in support of the Children’s programming for the Chicxulub Food Bank.  There will again be summer workshops for the children.

March Dispensa

I want to start off by saying thank you to all of you for your help and donations for this season.  It is a delight to see how many folks support this project.  If it was not for you, the village of Chicxulub would not be able to enjoy the kindness and generosity of the Snowbird and Ex-Pat population. I am including all of you in this thank you which means our  year round folks as well. Special thanks to the person who donates fresh tortillas monthly for the families. There are currently 65 families on the roster with another 5 who I will be visiting over the next few...

Packing of the dispensas on the 14th went smoothly with seasoned hands, Shirley and Dave with Andrea and Kay put the packages together swiftly and efficiently. Thanks to everyone who donated beans and rice and the donor who delivered 7 dispensas from Soriana’s. Like the rest of winter, the 15th dawned grey and cool.  There were fewer folks standing in line when we started but by the end of the hour, all but 3 families had come for their package. vitamin service Lorraine is back to hand out the tortillas austin helps keep order pauline and james are back..yahoo taxi service from Jody english student Camila Thanks to Wayne 2 for the...

Chicxulub Soup Kitchen

This is the end of a very successful intervention. As many of you know, the Chix Soup kitchen (Comedore de cienega de Chicxulub) was having tough times when the Food Bank got involved back in 2012-13. With a lot of hard work and donations the Soup Kitchen is now a thriving 5 day a week operation serving about 60-70 meals a day. Yes, it is sad that this comedore needs to exist at all but it is providing a necessary service. A photo recap shows the transition from what was to what is today and thank you to the many folks who helped along the way. overload gas leak cooking outside water pump not working new garden crop of cilantro donations arriving new initiative done ara who is the heart and soul of the comedore There is a group of women from Merida who oversee the initiative and have done a great job of watching and encouraging it to grow to where it is today.

January Dispensa

Wow what a busy dispensa we had today!  Lots of volunteers and energy withing the group of recipients.  The blue bags are to be brought back every 15th and exchanged for another one.  Well there is some trouble getting the idea across.  Some folks were sent home to collect their bags while others (older folks) were given a pass for this month but not another chance again.  They must return each month with their bag to switch it out. There were lots of children and some big smiles for everyone. Afterwards many of us stayed to enjoy some delicious food and  cold drinks at Mamma...
