This jicama came from the garden at the soup kitchen. I never really thought about how they grow and now I know.
The soup kitchen is doing well on their own with their Patronado from Merida.
The Food Bank will continue to collect plastic containers for them and left over food at the end of your time here but otherwise they no longer need our assistance. A true success thanks to everyone who worked to help them out at a very tough time.
Thanks to Jody who raised the issue and helped to solve it.
