(17 May 2018)


The UAE Food Bank on Wednesday announced that it has collected 2,160 tonnes of food and signed agreements with 35 foodstuff producers, 13 charities and three sponsors.

The announcement was made during the meeting of the bank's Board of Trustees, held in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and H.H. Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, Chairwoman of the Bank's Achievements Council.

The attendees also reviewed the bank's plans for the holy month of Ramadan that includes distribution of 500 Suhoor meals to labourers on a daily basis, after Taraweeh prayers, with the participation of around 700 volunteers, in association with the Community Development Authority, CDA, and a number of government entities.

The bank will also work with its partners to provide 1,500 snack meals, 500 meals for the RTA's bus drivers and 700 meals to labour camps on a daily basis from Zabeel Palace Hospitality.

The plan also features programmes to raise the public awareness on the importance of rational food consumption.

Dawood Al Hajri, Director-General of Dubai Municipality and the bank Chairman, who presided over the meeting, stressed the importance of following the best international practices to enhance the bank's performance. He also pointed out that the bank's 2018 plans focus on establishing food collection centres across the emirates, in association with the local authorities.

"The first centre has been established in the emirate of Ajman in association with the Humaid bin Rashid Charity Establishment and Ajman Municipality and the second one is scheduled to be opened in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah during this Ramadan," he said.

The charity has so far placed 80 fridges for food collection in mosques across the emirate of Dubai, 10 in the emirate of Ajman and 10 in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah, attendees learned.
