¨If you can´t feed a hundred people, then just feed one¨
Mother Theresa, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient, 1979

Greetings from Guatemala! A place where tradition can bring hope and joy, especially during the holiday season. The practice of "Tamales at Christmas" grew from the Mayan tradition of tamales as a special and festive symbol as early as 1200 BC. Sadly, many of our families cannot afford the ingredients for tamales so each year Mayan Families distributes Tamale Food Baskets to our impoverished families so they could celebrate the holidays... 
Since 2006 we have distributed over 8,700 Tamale Baskets!
With your support, you can help make this holiday season a time of joy for our families with the following gifts:
A Traditional Tamale Basket to feed 10 people

This includes: 
  • a whole chicken
  • oil & rice
  • a block of drinking chocolate (it is traditional to drink hot chocolate with the tamales at midnight)
  • vegetables & fruit
  • sugar & fortified cereal
  • black beans & pasta
  • a packet of Christmas cookies. 
  • Reusable plastic basket
A Holiday Food Bag for an elderly person
