Testimonials

"This entails much more than food donations. It generates positive energy between the people donating and those helping us donate. Our volunteers are delighted to donate a few hours of their day to stay in our stores and talk about the Fraternidade Sem Fronteiras project (Fraternity without Borders) and this humanitarian endeavor. In addition to food, it radiates extremely positive energy on several fronts. We are extremely grateful to each donor, cashier, and store manager "
