The UAE Food Bank has opened new branches in Ras Al Khaimah and Ajman, taking the total number to five across the country.
Since its launch in 2017, 7,943 tonnes of food had been distributed and agreements have been signed with 50 food establishments and 13 charities, as well as three partnerships with other food banks in the Arab world.
The chairman added that a special programme has been formulated for the holy month of Ramadan, through which nearly 3,500 Iftar and Suhoor kits will be prepared daily and the bank’s fridges will also be distributed in cooperation with Careem.
The UAE Food Bank is one of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives. It was launched in 2017 under the leadership of Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum.
