FEEDING SMILES PROGRAM  - USA

15,0000 MEALS PER MONTH

750 BENEFICIARIES PER DAY

Proposal Summary

The Feeding Smiles USA Program aims to contribute to the alleviation of hunger and malnutrition conditions among Venezuelan children, elderly and adults by providing at least 15,000 nutritious monthly meals for a continued period of 12 months. 

Helps households improve their children's nutritional needs instead of having to recur to undignified or illegal methods to obtain food.

In order to achieve this, a collection initiative of pre-packaged food bags containing non-perishable food items is set in place.

One of these meal bags can feed 6-10 individuals per day, reaching a total of 750 beneficiaries per day.

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 beneficiaries.

These products can be prepared in a variation of easy ways such as adding it to rice, soups or other meals to boost the daily caloric intake that a healthy nutrition requires.
