Cozu-Meals

A group of volunteers is operating a soup kitchen to help feed over 149 families, with a promedy of 4 members so, about 600 people per day. during the shut-down. It doesn’t take much to help. The soup kitchen has a network of volunteers who are delivering meals on their scooters to families so they can avoid crowds. They are prioritizing families with high at-risk members under quarantine. If you’ve ever enjoyed the generous and friendly people of Cozumel, please consider making a donation to help them in their time of need. Some basic pantry items are being included now as well, such as baby-formula when a meal cooked by the volunteers just can’t meet particular needs.

This is just one kitchen in a network of 6 – each of whom sponsor about the same amount of families. They’re accepting any donations, especially formula and baby needs.

Cozu-Meals is run by Brenda Briceño C. – who’s well known in the community for her public service. You can contact her by phone – 9871195943 – Facebook – Brenda M. Briceño Can. If you’re not here on island and want to donate – there’s a GoFundMe account as well.

 

Autumn’s Pozole Thursdays

In the neighborhood Fraccionamiento Caribe, we’ve organized Pozole Thursdays at Antojitos del Caribe, a neighborhood food truck run by a very sweet woman from Puebla. Fresh pozole makes everyone feel better! This effort helps feed families and gives work to the chef working the food truck, plus 1 helper.
There are a couple of ways to donate and sponsor a Pozole Thursday. Either via paypal or by delivering cash to Autumn Toñita, the organizer, in fraccionamiento Caribe.
$800 pesos or $40 USD let’s us give away 10 liters which feeds 10 families.
$1200 pesos or $60 USD let’s us give away 15 liters which feeds 15 families.
When you donate via PayPal, please write “Pozole Thursdays” in the note.
