Lunch Plate Program: Plata de dia
Children living in poverty receive a hot, nutritious meal at La Viña Community Center in Montellano, and at two other mobile sites in the neighboring villages of Pancho Mateo and El Saman.
A typical meal, plata de dia, includes rice and beans, vegetable, and a protein, such as fish or chicken. We also have pure drinking water available to the kids who come from the surrounding community for lunch.
The Lunch Plate Program currently serves almost 500 children each weekday. In addition, some elderly and disabled folks are served lunches as well.
