Collaborates with local NGOs to distribute medicine, no-perishable food, and funds to help over 400 families in Tripoli. 3 independent facilitators (Zeina Shaaban, Aman Damashqieh, and Lea Itani), not in conjunction with any NGOs or coalitions, have collected data on 400+ households mostly in Tripoli in dire need of food, gas and medicine. They are asking for cash donations and are coordinating with local stores for food and other needs, and pharmacies for medicine, to allow families to visit and pick up what they need directly from stores/pharmacies. Until now, they have compiled details of these families on an Excel sheet, which they can share in order to allow donors to choose which household they wish to help
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…
