UAE To Distribute 10 Million Meals

The 100 Million Meals campaign, the biggest food drive in the region, announced that it entered into a partnership with the UAE Food Bank to distribute 10 million meals inside the country.

The partnership will distribute 112,000 food parcels costing AED13.4 million to beneficiaries in the UAE through the UAE Food Bank’s logistical distribution network. Each parcel weighs 42 kg of basic food items and can satisfy one person for 30 days.

Nearly 1,000 volunteers, in cooperation with the UAE Food Bank’s staff, are engaged in the preparation and distribution of the meals while fully adhering to the precautionary measures aimed at curbing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In April 2021, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has launched ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign to provide food parcels for families and people in need across 30 countries. Launched as an expansion from last year’s locally-held ’10 Million Meals’ campaign that empowered COVID-19-hit communities across the UAE, the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign provided food support for the vulnerable in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
