Vallarta Food Bank Celebrates 4 Years of Fighting Food Insecurity

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The Vallarta Food Bank (VFB), founded in 2020 by Puerto Vallarta restaurateurs Francie Nguyen, Jimmy Plouff, and Frankie Victoria Bañuelos, marks its fourth anniversary on March 23rd. The organization has grown steadily, thanks to dedicated volunteers working to address food insecurity in the greater Banderas Bay community.

VFB’s mission extends beyond basic food provision. They aim to nurture hope and stability by offering essential food assistance, healthcare services, and developmental training programs to vulnerable populations in Puerto Vallarta, Bahía de Banderas, and Cabo Corrientes.

Through partnerships, innovative solutions, and a commitment to respecting human dignity, VFB empowers individuals and families to achieve self-sufficiency. Their ultimate goal is to build a future where everyone has access to the resources needed for a healthy and fulfilling life.

With the community’s support, VFB has made a significant impact in February alone. Their soup kitchen and community pantry reached over 250 families, providing not just meals but also essential dental care, dignified shower facilities, and even a “Happiness Club” for seniors. These achievements wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of donors and volunteers.

VFB acknowledges the ongoing challenges and the great need within the community. They invite the public to join their mission by becoming monthly donors, creating a stable foundation for their continuous efforts.

Every contribution brings us closer to a world where no one has to go without basic necessities.

The Vallarta Food Bank is 100% volunteer based, but all of their work would be impossible without the generosity of donors and supporters.
