Holiday Food Baskets


We believe that everyone should have the chance to partake in time-honored, traditional holiday celebrations. Unfortunately, many of the families we work with in rural Guatemala often do not have enough to eat on a daily basis, and sharing a festive meal with their loved ones during holidays is impossible.

To ensure that these vulnerable families can also participate in these special days of joy, we created festive food baskets filled with both nutritional staples and traditional treats to prepare each holiday meal.

We organize these baskets for the following holidays, and they make fantastic gifts for your sponsored student and their families:

  • Easter (Semana Santa)
  • Mother's Day
  • Christmas

The baskets hold enough ingredients to feed a family of six for a week, and offer it in a reusable plastic basket that they can use in the future. For more information on our Holiday Food Baskets, please contact

To send a Holiday Food Basket:

  • To your sponsored family please go to send a gift and identify your family
  • If you would like to simply offer one to the family with the greatest need simply write this in the description box.
