Co-founded in 2012, FoodBlessed is a local hunger-relief initiative that works with businesses and the civil society. FoodBlessed aims to reduce the number of people going hungry in Lebanon by asking others to be mindful of the food they let go to waste and offering them with practical solutions to cut down on their food waste generation and the opportunity to serve food to those in need through volunteering. As such, FoodBlessed addresses a social need “right to food” via fighting food poverty and hunger.
Volunteers help at soup kitchens Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, run food drives, assist in food packing, host fundraisers and awareness campaigns, and work their monthly bake sale. Single day volunteers are welcome on any of the food servings, which take place every single Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at locations around the city.
Volunteers in Beirut for longer can donate their time to help run food drives around the city, and also assist with the administration and fundraising efforts.
There are volunteer opportunities to serve food every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You must email ahead of time to request a spot in the weekly food services. Then, you have to show up as they only book three volunteers each day. Email is located on the website.
