The Feeding Smiles program aims to contribute to alleviating hunger and malnutrition conditions among Venezuelan children, the elderly and adults by providing at least 50,000 servings of mixed grains and dehydrated vegetables per month for a continuous period of 12 months.
Contribute to alleviating hunger and improving the nutritional status of at least 2,500 boys, girls, youth and adults per month
Provide at least one balanced meal a day to children, young people and adults who need it (a total of 50,000 meals a month).
Help households improve the nutritional needs of their children instead of having to resort to unworthy or illegal methods to obtain food.
How we do it?
To achieve this, both in Canada and the United States, an initiative is launched to collect pre-packaged food bags containing non-perishable food.
These products can be prepared in a variety of simple ways to increase the daily caloric intake required for healthy nutrition.
All food is grouped each month on shipping pallets for safe and efficient transportation to Venezuela, through private shipping companies.
The food packages are delivered to local partner organizations and food centers in Venezuela.
The local team then proceeds to handle, prepare and distribute the meals to the beneficiaries.
Until the end of 2021 we have been able to achieve:
More than 3,200,000 plates of food delivered
More than 580 boxes shipped adding 16.2 tons of food
More than 22,000 people benefited
More than 75 sponsored centers
