UAE Food Bank Launched

It was recently announced that 2017 has been designated as the Year of Giving in the UAE and the initiative has had a great start with the launch of the UAE Food Bank!

His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, recently announced the initiative that will reduce food waste and make sure leftovers go to those who need them most at home and abroad.

According to Dubai Media Office, the food bank will partner up “with hotels, restaurants, supermarkets to store and package excess fresh food effectively… then work with volunteers and partners to distribute the well-packaged food within and outside of the UAE.”
