Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Thanks to funds made available by the volunteer efforts of the PEACE Home Tours, PV Protectores Action for Food program is gaining speed here in the Puerto Vallarta area - already providing over 2500 meals since its inception on September 3rd, of this year.
The high demand food for families program grew out of flood relief efforts in September, 2010 and has continued to expand due to the consistent increase in job loss and need.
Town beautification projects are identified by local residents in partnership with PEACE who then volunteer their time to complete the projects in their neighborhoods in return for food. This allows individuals to build on their own capabilities in a way that validates their dignity, instead of PEACE simply collecting donations and handing out food to people who have none.
Local residents select the projects and then begin cleaning and separating trash from fields, plazas, rivers, and schools. Two hours of their time provides them with a bag containing 10 meals.
To support this program, please join PEACE on one of their fun and entertaining home tours offered every Tuesday from December 4th through March 26th. Four unique homes are featured each week ending at a small, local, family owned restaurant for complimentary homemade tortilla and salsa samples. There will be no tours on Christmas or New Years.
Tickets for the 2012-2013 Home Tour season are $450.00 pesos (about $35 USD) and can be purchased at Superior Tours in Plaza Romy, where the tours depart from, weekdays from 10 am to 5 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm. Superior Tours is located at #228 I. Vallarta street.
