Mexico City: community dining rooms program

Author: FAO, EStà, Mexico City

In 2009, the Government of Mexico City set up the Community Dining Rooms Programme (CDRP) to provide nutritious meals at affordable and stable prices in the most marginalized areas of the city. A diversity of actors -local government, academic institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector- are involved under a co-responsibility model. One of the objectives of the programme is to empower vulnerable groups of the society through jobs creation and revitalization of the community spirit.
