• Each food parcel comprised essential ingredients enough to prepare meals for month
• Food support reached more than 362,000 beneficiaries across the nation
• More than 1,000 volunteers alongside MBRGI and UAE Food Bank supported the distribution efforts
 
Dubai-UAE - 9 November 2021:   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. To ensure a seamless distribution operation, the UAE Food Bank followed a six-pronged approach – operating model, beneficiaries, product, suppliers, delivery, and governance and funding.
 
A long list of partners worked alongside the UAE Food Bank to support the successful distribution of the food parcels to beneficiaries, including Dubai Police, Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai, Emirates Red Crescent, Ras Al Khaimah Municipality, Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nouimi Foundation, Saud Bin Rashid Al Mualla Charitable and Humanitarian Establishment, Fujairah Charity Association, Sharjah Charity International, Tarahum Charity Foundation, Watani Al Emarat Foundation, and Model Service Society.
 
Reaching Beneficiaries Wherever They May Be
His Excellency Eng. Dawood Al Hajri, Vice Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the UAE Food Bank, said: “The 100 Million Meals campaign, the largest donation drive in the region, was a model in inclusive charitable and humanitarian support regardless of ethnicity, religion, or age. We are honored to lead the distribution operations in the UAE, in collaboration with the organizers, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, and in coordination with other charitable and humanitarian establishments across the nation.”
 
Al Hajri added: “We kicked off distribution in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, that crises reveal the true values of people and societies, and the directives of his wife Her Highness Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of UAE Food Bank, to ensure essential non-perishable food products reach families and individuals in need wherever they may be.”
 
A Voluntary Social Movement
Sara Al Nuaimi, Director at Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global initiative, said: “The campaign's successful distribution of more than 10.8 million meals to different regions across the UAE is due to the critical support of the UAE Food Bank, who had previously played a key logistical role in the 10 Million Meals, launched by Her Highness Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum in 2020 in solidarity with low-income families and individuals impacted by COVID-19 pandemic.”
 
Al Nuaimi added: “With the growing international focus on dealing with hunger, and the increased awareness around the concept of food security to include people from low-income brackets and most in need, the 100 Million Meals campaign is a direct response reaching beneficiaries. It resulted in a supportive social movement, whether through donations or volunteering. The undertaking of 1,060 volunteers from the UAE community to support the distribution of food parcels catalyzed the completion of the operations.”
 
Ongoing Distribution
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.
 
100 Million Meals
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives organized 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 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.
