WATCH VIDEO: DELIVERING FOOD PACKAGES

Through this platform, we aim to sustain local initiatives actively supporting the Tulum community TODAY. We've broken down our program into the three main areas of support we are focusing on: (1) FOOD for our community on a daily basis, through local kitchens and non-perishable food package deliveries. (2) Supporting active members of the community (Neighborhood Heroes) addressing a breath of needs including drinking water, relocation, jungle fires, and more, and (3) Supporting Mayan Communities severely affected at this time.

Our goal is to help sustain the efforts of these initiatives by understanding their needs on a weekly basis and establish a long-term support model. ALL PROCEEDS ARE 100% FOR THESE PROJECTS.

FOOD RELIEF FOR TULUM SUPPORT PLAN

The main goal is to keep our community fed. We are achieving this through supporting community kitchens by UNIDOS TULUM and BOTANICA to delivering food packages with RED SOLIDARIA and volunteers. The kitchens are currently serving 500+ free meals per day, and the food deliveries we aim to reach 2,000+ families in surrounding towns.

Kitchen Goal: To sustain the community kitchen’s operation while feeding 500+ people per day and addressing their needs on a weekly calendar.
