This entry will help clear up confusion around the Chicxulub Food Bank and Soup Kitchen. I have heard for a few years now that people are confused about the 2 organizations and people are saying that one or the other is in trouble.
The Food Bank has been working now for 15 years and continues to have a solid donation and volunteer base.
The soup kitchen, has been in place since 2010 “El Señor de la Misericordia” which belongs to the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, Chicxulub Puerto. The kitchen operates out of “La Casa de Cristiandad” and serves the neediest families in Chicxulub.
The Food Bank has supported the soup kitchen since 2011 mostly by taking your donated food at the end of the season to the staff there. We were involved with restructuring the soup kitchen doing things like successfully repairing and replacing the identified problems.
Electrical repairs and water pump correction were done by local electricians and plumbers as well as delivering cleaning and staple supplies.
