The UAE Food Bank is distributing more than 120,000 Iftar meals with the help of sponsors and supporters during the holy month of Ramadan.
The initiative, which aims to cut food waste in the UAE, is also conducting a food donation drive in collaboration with Lacnor and Oasis in various hypermarkets of Lulu, Choithram and Union Coop outlets in Dubai.
"Our leadership has always underscored the importance of consolidating the values of giving and charity through various initiatives and activities. The UAE Food Bank is a true embodiment of these values in our society that acts through strengthening the principles of solidarity and unity among all segments of the society," said Dawoud Al Hajri, vice chairman of the board of trustees of UAE Food Bank.
"We always see excellent positive response to the activities and events of UAE Food Bank, especially in the month of Ramadan, which is the month of charity and blessing. UAE Food Bank is the best way to deliver the food needs of all the needy across the emirate, which contributes in bringing happiness and pleasure to them," he said.
The UAE Food Bank has recently opened five new sites - three locations in Dubai, one in Ras Al Khaimah and another in Ajman.
The UAE Food Bank has also extended its partnership with Careem which has increased the timing for donations from 11am to 5pm daily.
There are also 80 UAE Food Bank fridges, with instructions on them, placed in different parts of Dubai for people to donate food during the holy month and year-round.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
