The food donations of the agricultural season in Sinaloa have come to an end, and with it has also come the time to thank so many companies and collaborators who throughout the season have always been present for our organization and beneficiaries.
More than 600 tons of vegetables were donated to our beneficiaries from December 2022 to June 2023, particularly by 17 farmers from Navolato, Elota, Culiacan, and Angostura. The food donated was tomato, cucumber, chili, eggplant, berries, pumpkin, carrot, and onion.
The farmers that donated more than 600 tons this agricultural season that just ended and of which we are very grateful for another year of support were Agricola Paredes, Viva Organica, Tuxcana, Santa Elena, Ashley, De la Costa, Ejam, Sakata, Tricar, Sol y Arena Anthony, SB Produce, Nazario, Santa Teresa, Valle del sol, Chaparral, ARGH, and Areem.
The cornerstone of our organization is the support of the agricultural sector of Sinaloa, the companies are allies who work hard every day to collect food for our beneficiaries, they go far beyond being socially responsible, they are permanent allies of our cause and beneficiaries.
There are many things behind those 600 tons of vegetables; there are resources invested, hours of work, and hard work of many coworkers who every day are thinking about how to avoid food waste and donate it to our organization. To all of them, thank you very much!
When the new Food Bank project materializes, we estimate that at least 5 times more tons of food will be collected from the countryside of Sinaloa during the year. With this, we will be able to feed many more people since currently, we can only help 75,000 of the more than 800,000 people in poverty in the state.
Sinaloa’s agriculture not only feeds millions of people around the world through the products it provides to the domestic and foreign markets, but it also feeds thousands of people in poverty and extreme poverty through the Culiacan Food Bank.
Today more than ever we must value the great contribution that Sinaloa’s agriculture makes to Mexican families, but above all, the great contribution it makes to those families that find it difficult to have access to certain foods due to poverty.
May these lines serve to recognize, thank, and value this great effort they make every day. Actions and good things must also be spread, especially when they are a little scarce lately.
