Objectives:

To develop the initiative "Sustento", an income-generating opportunity that will make the "Alimenta la Solidaridad" food halls self-sustainable in the near future.

This will be achieved by training the food hall parents in catering lunches for workers and executives in private companies.

The specific objectives are:

  1. Train parents in food hygiene and handling, basic notions of gastronomy and food preparation.
  2. Train the community in food production (vegetable gardens and artisanal charcuterie).
  3. Generate a sales, service and distribution structure for the products generated by the community.

Beneficiaries:

With the income generated by these initiatives, the community will be able to provide for the food halls and in the not-so-distant future, to make these food halls self sustainable.

Every person working in this initiative will receive a salary.
