The 100 Million Meals campaign, the largest of its kind in the region to provide food to more than 30 countries in the Arab world, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America, has successfully distributed 10,868,400 meals in the UAE, in collaboration with the UAE Food Bank.

A total of 362,280 beneficiaries in the UAE, made up of 182,916 low income families and 179,364 low income individuals, received 120,760 food parcels – each containing essential food ingredients such as rice, flour, chickpeas, lentils, sugar, cooking oil, dates, and milk – enough for each beneficiary to prepare meals for one month.

The 100 Million Meals campaign continues its food aid distribution in several countries, ensuring AED216 million worth of food support reaches beneficiaries in more than 30 countries throughout the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives organised the 100 Million Meals campaign during the Holy Month of Ramadan in 2021 to feed the needy and provide food aid to the destitute and contribute to providing a food safety net in lower-income communities.

The campaign comes under the Humanitarian Aid and Relief pillar, which is one of the five main pillars that comprise the work of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, and represents a practical response to one of the biggest challenges facing the world today – hunger and malnutrition.
