El Merendungue

It happened there in 2001 when families like yours and mine passed through the door of the house with little boys who turned the garbage in search of food. We started with a bakery that donated the bills to us once a week and assembled bags that we distributed from a retired center to the boys who passed. The water ran, and 6 years ago we decided to formalize ourselves, and we started calling ourselves El Merendungue. In the Capital 250 tons are thrown per day of food in good condition, perfect for consumption ... We currently distribute around 2000 kg of food per week. Our philosophy is not only to feed, but also to gratify by offering rich things like the ones you and I like to eat (knishes, sushi, treats, crumb sandwiches, cakes, fine doughs ... and more). If we had a roof, we would surely double. Our dream is that young people with disabilities work to carry out the task of gathering, selecting and preparing the food that we send daily to the dining rooms (our "customers").
