Club Spotlight: Full Belly Brasil

Full Belly Brasil clubs help us accomplish our mission to feed families in need and to combat climate change. The club:

  • Plans fundraisers, both in and out of school and hosts bake sales or an event with a percentage of ticket earnings going to Full Belly.
  • Raises the social media awareness for Full Belly through sharing posts through stories, asking people to follow the account to gain attention and raise awareness for the cause.
  • Runs food drives. Not just for families in Brazil, but if we want in our town/city (or even to help with the Dixie fires).
  • Decrease food waste through awareness. Food waste is a major contributor to climate change because it produces methane, a greenhouse gas 84 times stronger than carbon dioxide when measured on a 20-year scale. If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest greenhouse gas emitter behind China and the United States.
  • Plans Environmental Initiatives: Planting trees! "For every tree planted around the world donors donate an extra pound of organic food to families"

Some upcoming events Full Belly Brasil has planned:

  • This Saturday the 25th at Larkin Circle River Path is the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful's (KTMB) Truckee River Cleanup! KTMB is an organization that is hosting an event in multiple different locations to keep Truckee River clean. This year KTMB is able to celebrate its 18th annual Truckee River clean up! Keeping Truckee clean is important because the River provides about 85% of the water used in homes and businesses in the Reno/Sparks area.
  • 30 September and 1 October we will be hosting a bake sale during lunch in both the upper and lower school building. 
  • 16 October The Last Straw Club has invited us to clean up acres of land more updates TBD. 

We hope to see you there!
