A typical day’s food ready for housemother pick-up at COAR’s store house. Our Director, Marta, has been very successful gaining local food donations. World food price inflation came down last year (the rate of inflation, not the prices, themselves.) However, the drought in Central America is likely to raise them, again. Even so, a local charity brought special gift baskets for the Christmas party.
The gift baskets came with the extra cheer of those international ambassadors of childhood, Mickey and Minnie.
