THE INCREASE IN AVAILABLE INCOME AND THE EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN, CREATE A CAPACITY-BUILDING PLATFORM FOR PRODUCTION.
Under the heading of food, in Mexico some 4 million pesos were donated to Alimento para Todos, I.A.P., for the training of 62 organizations who hold food drives, covering subjects related to the proper receiving, selecting, classifying, storing, and delivering of food products. In addition, infrastructure needs for these organizations were evaluated so as to enhance optimum operation of their facilities.
As part of our innovation, this year we launched several campaigns in favor of Food Banks, such as the first edition of the “Walmart Run - Costa Rica” race. It entailed running 6 and 10 km, and a 2-km walk. The proceeds from enrolling in the races were set aside for programs that fight hunger. Another campaign was the “Sula Marathon - Honduras”. Operations served as sponsor for this 4th edition race, consisting of 5k, 10k, and 21k runs in support of the Food Bank.
