JAS Brazil participated in the planning and successful mobilization of the “JAS Solidaria – Food Collection” campaign, held in May 2021. Thanks to the team's collective efforts, the JAS amassed close to 1 ton of food in its fight against global hunger. With the amount of food gathered during the drive, JAS was able to feed 1,550 people for one day, 220 people for one week, or 50 people for one month.
The drive was not limited to food items. Much-needed clothing items were also collected for men, women, and children. JAS Brazil donated all clothing and food items to philanthropic associations for distribution where needed. Low-income families who live in JAS Brazil branch regions benefited from direct distribution.
