Lebanese Food Bank

03-714401

Our mission is to fight and overcome hunger by developing effective Feeding Programs in parallel with Development & Awareness programs to eliminate hunger.

The Lebanese Food Bank is a non-profit (Licence #1596), non-confessional and non-partisan organization established by a group of Lebanese business men in 2012 and a member of the Regional Food Banking Network in Dubai. It is presently headed by Mr. Kamal Sinno and is backed by a number of board members.

It strives towards the eradication of hunger throughout Lebanon through a range of food, development/training and awareness programs. Knowing that 28.6% of the population in Lebanon lives in poverty (around 20.6% live below the upper poverty line which translates into about $4 per day and around 8% are extremely poor and live below the lower poverty line estimated at $2.4 per day), we are working towards both short-term relief and a long-term sustainable solution to this pressing issue.

At present, we provide food on a daily basis to families and individuals in need mainly through the collection of surplus food from partner restaurants, hotels, caterers, supermarkets and fruit and vegetables, food exporters/importers. Our main line of work is to provide food to a selected number of more than 70 Lebanese NGOs active in a variety of fields.

Our action is indispensable in Lebanon today and in order to achieve it, we rely on donations in kind and in money from individuals and an increasing number of corporate partners: banks, hotels, institution, restaurants, catering companies…

Hello All,

First thank you to everyone that participated in the Human Chain it was truly a spectacle. But our work isn’t over, we need to make sure the whole of Lebanon and the world know how we stood in solidarity for our entire country in the face of adversity.

Below are a group of links to prominent news stories (in English and Arabic) that have been published as a result of the Human Chain. What we need you to do is the following:

1. Repost the stories on your social media handles (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook)

2. Use the Hashtags #LebaneseHumanChain and #السلسلة_البشرية_اللبنانية

3. Tag @Humanchain.lebanon

4. Circulate this message to everyone you know (residents and expats)

By doing this we will be able to feed online traffic to those news stories so they become trending topics and in turn become more likely to appear in a google search about Lebanon. This will greatly help keep the conversation about our beloved country’s revolution alive, and show the world that we stand hand in hand in solidarity…literally

Swiss Leaks (or SwissLeaks) is the name of a journalistic investigation, released in February 2015, of a giant tax evasion scheme allegedly operated with the knowledge and encouragement of the British multinational bank HSBC via its Swiss subsidiary, HSBC Private Bank (Suisse).  Triggered by leaked information from French computer analyst Hervé Falciani on accounts held by over 100,000 clients and 20,000 offshore companies with HSBC in Geneva, the disclosed information has been called “the biggest leak in Swiss banking history”
