A Community We Support: Estancia de San Antonio


The Feed the Hungry kitchen in the rural community of Estancia de San Antonio opened in 2007.  During school year 2023-2024, Feed the Hungry San Miguel is providing nutritious meals to 73 children in the Melchor Ocampo primary school and 31 children in the Jaime Nunó preschool (kinder).

Nutrition Report – School Year 2022-2023 

For the latest Nutrition Report, our staff nutritionists assessed students through height, weight, and body fat measurements.  

Although the measured students present mostly normal nutritional states based on weight, there were evident clinical signs that indicate some degree of nutritional deficiencies, such as dehydrated hair, skin, and lips, and slightly sunken eyes. This could be associated with nutritional deficiencies such as protein, vitamin C, and vitamin A. 

Overweight was evidenced by mild to moderate dental caries and slightly elevated waist and hip circumference for their age, as well as the beginnings of acanthosis nigricans, which is evidence of poor eating habits. 

We will continue to encourage increased consumption of fruits, vegetables, and natural water during school hours and outside of school, and to design school lunch menus specific to their nutritional needs.
