Partnership with the Quentinhas do Bem Veggie Project
Quentinhas do Bem Veggie is the new project taken on by the House of Cristo do Bem, (House of Christ of Good) an affiliate of the Fraternity – International Humanitarian Federation (FIHF).

The partnership with the House began on Sunday, March 23, and has the help of the Well Done Project, which offers 100 carryout warm meals, totaling 380 distributed meals each Sunday.
