Feed the Hungry celebrates Mexico’s Independence with a street-food festival
By Valarie Brown Coon
Calle San Miguel promises to be a street-food festival like no other as Feed the Hungry San Miguel literally takes its cause to the street at Ancha de San Antonio. In a nod to historical tradition, ceremonial tortillas will be stamped with the Feed the Hungry logo and will introduce partygoers to a cultural and culinary journey where they can sample their way through centuries-old traditions, customs and food preparations.

Located in the rear gardens of the Instituto Allende, the event’s co-host, this all-inclusive experience, complete with commemorative souvenirs, will be the talk of the town and an annual Feed the Hungry San Miguel tradition.
