Hunger continues at record levels in Brazil, according to IBGE surveys, and our Jardim Panorama neighbors alerted us to the ongoing food crisis faced by many local families.
Acknowledging this humanitarian crisis, Avenues: The World School, represented by the São Paulo, New York and Online campuses and our community of parents and students (Avenues Parent Association), understands that it is necessary to act, through the donation of food baskets. As our mission says, "we will share our prosperity with those who need it… in ways that leap the walls of our campuses."
These emergency food baskets will be distributed in partnership with UniãoSP, a civil society initiative that seeks to combat the social challenges caused by the pandemic of COVID-19.
Our target is 1,800 baskets, allowing us to support hungry families in neighboring Jardim Panorama during November, December and January 2022. This follows June’s successful campaign, which raised 600 baskets.
