The UAE Food Bank provided meals to more than 12.7 million beneficiaries this year by tapping surpluses from various food establishments.

It also delivered around 293 tonnes of food to the Emirates Red Crescent for relief missions in earthquake-hit Turkey and Syria.

Another 54 tonnes of aid was dispatched for relief efforts in Libya, and 60 tonnes were sent out to support the Compassion for Gaza campaign.

The initiative led by Dubai Municipality has also been expanding its partnership with local and global entities to prevent food wastage and manage surpluses.
