Remember US government surplus food in the '60's

Here is the Mexico version - altho you have to pay a little. This foto is of 2 allotments each at 20 pesos so total was 40. The distribution is pretty erratic and sometimes it's just milk or milk with cookies. We were able to get 2 this time because the program is winding down for summer vacation which starts in about 2 weeks.

What am I doing being a small part of this. Well, we have 5 kids with 4 below secondary and all kids are eligible "if they have the 20 pesos". Mari would not think of passing these offers up. 'Desarrollo Integral de la Familia' (DIF) of Jalisco is who provides these foods.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
