The Director of the Food Bank points out that so far this year, BAMX has supported 1,980 families and has delivered 4,862 food packages.
MAZATLAN. – Did you know that according to a study carried out by CONEVAL 2020, in Sinaloa more than 73 thousand people live in extreme poverty, 167 thousand 856 are in a state of poverty and 147 thousand 867 people have food shortages without having guaranteed the 3 foods?
This has led the Mazatlán Food Bank to work on creating campaigns to try to combat this problem that afflicts a large part of Sinaloans, a problem that if not treated urgently could become a serious problem.
Its president, Rafael Ernesto Domínguez Kelly, explained that so far this year, BAMX has supported 1,980 families and has delivered 4,862 food packages in 43 communities that are served in Mazatlán and southern Sinaloa.
But it is not enough, which is why they have chosen to make agreements and collaborations to create support campaigns.
“We are very happy to be able to count on these companies, the proceeds from these campaigns will be used to purchase food, which will complement the food packages offered by the Food Bank to 11,000 beneficiaries.”

“Hit a Home Run for Food” with Venados de Mazatlán
This will take place in the month of November, during the Venados vs. Ciudad Obregón series. The acquisition of the tickets will be through food (2 kilos of rice or 2 liters of tetra pack milk). The food collected will be used to complement the food packages that are delivered to the beneficiaries of the Mazatlán Food Bank ( BAMX ).
This campaign seeks to support the Private Assistance institutions of the state of Sinaloa in their operating expenses and thus be able to reach more people in need, through the sale of tickets to participate in the raffle of various prizes, which can be purchased directly at the facilities of the Food Bank of Mazatlan ( BAMX ).
An alliance was created with Cada Ley to receive donations of perishable and non-perishable products suitable for human consumption, as well as chemical products and pet food.
