Our Story

Our Story

Alimenta la Solidaridad is a Venezuelan non-governmental organization (NGO) founded by Roberto Patiño in 2016, as a program of Caracas Mi Convive, to address the food crisis affecting the most vulnerable sectors of the Caracas Metropolitan Area. We began by establishing community kitchens and strengthening close ties with our beneficiaries thanks to our co-responsibility model.

Today, our presence has expanded to more than 13 states in the country, with programs based on community organizing.

To date, we have served more than 22 million meals and reached more than 43,000 beneficiaries through our community kitchens project and training programs in leadership, protection, education, and livelihoods.

The Organization

Why do we do it?

We want to break the generational cycle of inequality so that every Venezuelan can reach his or her full potential.
