We have been asked where one might purchase food items in bulk locally to donate to our Holiday Food Drive if they would rather not carry them down from the states. Here in Rocky Point there is a wholesale grocery outlet called “Mayoreo Welton” (in English:” Wholesale Outlet”), with a warehouse type layout located on a street that runs diagonally
to the left off Benito Juarez right after the stop light at Lopez Portillo heading north. You will notice the large colorful sign as shown in the photo below. There you can purchase non-perishable food items by the case much like a Costco (on a smaller scale). Mayoreo Welton primarily serves the local restaurant industry but has gained a following of gringos and large Mexican families in the couple of years since it began operation. Further north on Benito Juarez on the left is the familiar Santa Fe super market and across the street from Santa Fe is the new Bodega Aurrera, the Mexican Walmart partner where you can also purchase some foods in bulk. Our thanks to those concerned enough about the food drive to ask this question. Volunteer Drop-Off Locations in Town We are also receiving offers from local businesses volunteering as drop-off points for donations. Right now, in addition to any of the Sonoran Resort Sales Offices, you can drop your food donations off at the Rocky Point Visitor Assistance office (Thank You, Rosie Glover!) located on the second floor of the blue building where the Tequila Factory is located off Benito Juarez. Sunset Cantina has also volunteered to be a drop-off point for donations. Thank you Santana and Louis! Latitude 31 is our newest volunteer to serve as a drop-off point for any non-perishable food donations you may have. Thanks to Mike and Cindy for your help. We will keep you updated on new drop-off locations and other information that will help make our 1st Annual Holiday Food Drive a huge success!.
