Brazil Emergency Response

In one of the worst climate disasters in the country’s history, heavy rains and flooding have caused catastrophic damage in parts of Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul state, where 107 people have died, 136 are missing, 374 are injured, and more than 1.4 million people have been affected.

GFN’s local partner, Sesc Mesa Brasil, with a network of 95 food banks across the country, has been working day and night to be a conduit for donations, providing food and other necessities for those displaced and affected by flooding. In Brazil, food banks are an integral part of local service centers and some have even been able to shelter those who have been displaced. They are also providing warm clothes, and hygiene and cleaning supplies, and partnering with local companies who can donate food and necessary products.

If you would like to personally contribute to help with relief efforts to support the local food bank, please consider a donation supporting GFN.

About The Global FoodBanking Network

The Global FoodBanking Network supports community-led solutions to alleviate hunger in nearly 50 countries. While millions struggle to access enough safe and nutritious food, nearly a third of all food produced is lost or wasted. We’re changing that. We believe food banks directed by local leaders are key to achieving Zero Hunger and building resilient food systems.

The Global FoodBanking Network is a 501(c)3 charitable organization registered with the Internal Revenue Service in the United States of America; contributions are tax-deductibile to the extent allowed by US law. Tax deductibility outside of the US is dependent on local tax regulations. GFN’s Tax ID number (EIN) is: 20-4268851
