Most families that we work with do not have the money to buy the basic staples needed for nourishment. If we can provide for the basic needs, they can use their money to pay rent etc. These bags give foods for families in Brazil and the United States that have nutritional value and help put the family on a healthy track.
One 40 lb bag of rice, beans, flour, tortillas, canned goods, etc. This bag of food is enough to meet the basic needs of the families. These needy and poor children in Brazil and the United States desperately need food. By providing this bag of basics, the families can spend what little money they have on other needs. The food items are different in the United States than in Brazil. Because there are different cultures and different needs the bags will include different items. It really does make a difference for the families.
