JBS will donate between July and December 250 tons of protein for the preparation of meals intended for those in a socially vulnerable situation, primarily on account of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil.
The campaign, United against Hunger, will support institutions selected by the “Fazer O Bem Faz Bem” Program engaged in projects that prepare and distribute meals in regions of Brazil with high poverty rates. In addition, the team members of more than 100 of the company’s units around the country can participate by nominating local institutions where JBS is present to receive protein donations.
The volume of protein is sufficient to produce 2.5 million meals, which will be prepared and delivered by our partner institutions.
