The “SLC Contra Fome” [SLC against hunger] action supports the Doe Alimentos [donate food] project, from Rede de Bancos de Alimentos do Rio Grande do Sul, which for 20 years has been helping to minimize hunger in the state. The initiative is a way for the population to give food, affection and hope to those who need it most. In a practical and quick way, a food basket is assembled and donated by the citizen, thus benefiting institutions in different cities in Rio Grande do Sul.
For Eduardo Logemann, president of Grupo SLC, if each one does their part and donates a little, the chain against hunger will become even stronger. “SLC Agrícola, through Instituto SLC, wants to join efforts to help the South American cowboys who live in vulnerable situations. Collaboration has been part of the company’s purpose since its foundation and now it invites both society and the company’s collaborators to engage in the fight against hunger”.
