Basic Food Basket Aid

The Basic Basket aid was created in 2021 to try to reduce the damage caused by the pandemic, such as the large increase in unemployment and hunger rates in Brazil. This aid was adopted by some states and municipalities, with an average value of R$200 for socially vulnerable families.

Since then, some cities have continued the benefit and to this day provide the amount to families in need. But the criteria and rules change according to each region, as not all cities have the program implemented, as this benefit is not at the federal level.

To find out if your city has the Auxílio Cesta Básica program, go to the nearest CRAS or Social Assistance unit and find out about the distribution of basic food baskets to the population. If you need it and your city is not offering help, we have another option for those who need to eat.

Fraternal Brazil

Brasil Fraterno, also known as Comida no Prato, is the government program to combat hunger and food waste in the national territory. It is aimed at helping individuals and families who need it most, with donations from the population and collaboration from companies.

Companies that commit to Fraternal Brazil and transfer food products for distribution by the State, receive exemption from ICMS (Tax on Circulation of Goods and Provision of Services) and the official seal of participation in the program. An incentive that encourages other organizations to participate.

How do I receive assistance from the basic food basket?

To receive assistance from the basic food basket, individuals must be registered and have updated information on the CadÚnico (Single Registry), as well as any other benefit offered by the Federal Government. 

CadÚnico is the main tool for the Government to create policies to support the population, in addition to being the means of knowing who really needs to receive the aid provided for in these programs. That's why it's important to be up to date.
