Dear Friend of Feed the Hungry San Miguel,
I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. As 2023 comes to a close, I am thrilled to share with you the achievements we have accomplished, thanks to your dedication to our cause. First and foremost, I am delighted to inform you of the opening of three new school kitchens in desperately poor communities. We are now operating in 37 schools.
Another exciting event that took place earlier this year was the Walk, Run, Bike for Food Challenge. The support we received from our community was truly overwhelming. We were able to raise enough funds to provide one full month of free school lunch meals to our beneficiaries.
During the 2022-2023 school year, more than 800,000 school meals were served to approximately 4,442 children through the School Meals Program. These wholesome and balanced meals not only increase class attendance, but they also help the students stay alert during lessons and empower them to reach their full potential.
Our Extended Alimentation Program provided critical nutritional support for 50 families in 7 communities. And through the Early Childhood Nutrition Program, sustenance was provided to 188 childrenwho have been weaned but are not yet in school. Workshops guided mothers on healthy eating habits during their children’s growth. In addition, the Student Hydration Program expanded to deliver purified water to 21 communities where water is contaminated or in short supply.
Furthermore, I am proud to announce that we have successfully completed our ambitious goal of providing nutritionist consultations for all of the students we serve. This enabled us to assess the nutritional needs of each child and tailor our meal plans accordingly.
Looking ahead to 2024, we have even more reasons to celebrate. Feed the Hungry San Miguel will mark its 40th year in service to the community. This significant milestone is a testament to the collective effort of our staff, volunteers, and supporters like you who have been the bedrock of our organization. We are immensely proud of the impact we have made over four decades, but our work is far from over. In the upcoming year, our aim is to continue to serve as many beneficiaries as resources allow.
