Since March 2020, Guayaquil, Ecuador has been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Banco de Alimentos Diakonía has dramatically scaled up its food assistance by increasing the number of beneficiary organizations it supports. It now reaches more than 1 million people, a more than 30-fold increase compared to 2019. While schools are closed, Diakonía distributes emergency food boxes to families with children who previously benefited from the school breakfast program.
