Overview

Join the Food Management Volunteering Program in Mexico and feed those who are hungry! Yucatan is facing a big problem with food distribution. Although enough food is produced, hundreds of thousands of Yucatecans who live in poor conditions do not have access to food, that is necessary to maintain their families.

On the other hand, every day tons of food is thrown away by cafes and restaurants. That is where the food bank comes in, receiving the donations and distribute them amongst the people in need within the city and in the communities outside.

You will have the chance to be close to the local community and better understand their everyday needs and their reality when it comes to feeding their families. You will be part of a solidary team and make a meaningful impact on many lives! 

It’ll be a great opportunity for high school and college students, as well as gap year travelers, who are looking for a meaningful volunteering experience in Mexico.
