We hope that you are all staying well and healthy during this stressful time.
The Canadian Children’s Shelter Of Hope Foundation knows that like everyone else COVID-19 has changed your lives.
For many of our friends in Banderas Bay a devastating loss of income is leaving many in peril of not being able to nourish themselves and their families.
CCSHF is assisting by assembling our own food bank
Our initial goal was to help feed and sustain 35 families (or as many as we could) for a period of 2 to 3 months in hopes of alleviating unnecessary suffering, thanks to amazing people we are now feeding 47 families.
But there are always more families that could use a hand in this hard times
OUR NEW GOAL NOW IS TO SUSTAIN AT LEAST 65 FAMILIES MORE.
Our cost each week per food parcel is around 26 CAD/19 USD and it includes:
1kg Tomato, 0.5kg onion, 0.5kg zuchinni, 0.5kg Lime, 1Kg carrots, 1kg chambray potatoes, 1kg cucumber, 1kg banana, 1kg sugar, 1kg beans, 1kg rice, 1kg lentils, 4 small pasta, 0.5kg salt, 1kg oatmeal, 500ml cooking oil, 20 tostadas, 1kg eggs, tomato puree, 100gr Jamaica, 0.5kg soy, 0.5kg chick pea, 1kg tortilla flour, 1 lt Pineoil, 1lt chlorine, 1 dish soap, 1 hot chocolate bar, 1 handsoap bar.
Pescaderia Juanita donated 100kg ground fish in coupons when the project started, so the first 100 parcels included fish.
Some items rotate in a weekly basis, depending on costs and availability with the suppliers.
