Sheikh Mohammed has dedicated his Accession Day today to launch the UAE Food Bank, a non-profit charitable organization committed to distributing food to those in need while eliminating food waste.
The UAE Food Bank will collaborate with local authorities as well as local and international charities to introduce a comprehensive ecosystem improving the efficiency of food storage, packaging and distribution. It will partner with food producers such as restaurants, supermarkets, hotels and farms to store and package excess fresh food effectively.
The UAE Food Bank will work with volunteers and partners to distribute the well-packaged food within and outside of the UAE. The initiative aims to position Dubai as the first city in the region to achieve zero food waste.
