ACOMERPR has distributed food throughout the island, while establishing community gardens in
5 municipalities: Mayagüez, San Juan, Ponce, Loiza, and Camuy:
To date, we have served thousands of Puerto Ricans with food distributions, community gardens, and
research and education initiatives. The programs we conduct serve community members and
marginalized communities in these regions to promote economic development and access to affordable,
nutritious food. The populations of these communities are often impoverished. Our organization has
increasingly grown to serve elderly populations, as they suffer from severe food insecurity when compared
to the national average.
