Meals for the homeless in Rio
Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The organisation helps homeless people. Volunteers collect foodstuffs intended for disposal, sorts them and prepares meals that are then distributed to the homeless. As well as distributing meals, the organisation manages a participative community vegetable garden based on organic farming. The food left over from distribution is used as compost.
The organisation currently relies on the vehicles of its volunteers for collecting and distributing food. It is seeking to acquire a used vehicle to ensure the long-term future of the activity and increase the frequency of distributions.
