Our food depot is near completion. Here's a shot of the inside. We used cement stucco to smooth out all the rough spots and fill in the holes. Much easier to maintain cleanliness this way. This construction project is sponsored by CRS-USAID. They chose us for this food storage center because of our track record with them. We have been overseeing a food program for 800 local families apart from feeding our children and running a soup kitchen (cantine is what we call it here). Having a food depot on site makes a lot of sense and will be easier to manage. Imagine 200+ people arriving for their monthly allotment of food and the truck from Les Cayes doesn't arrive! It's happened and we would prefer it not happen again.
