 ESDU - Food for Beirut

​Food for Beirut is being organized by AUB’s Environment and Sustainable Development Unit (ESDU), the Food Heritage Foundation, and their partners who are hard at work in the Akleh community kitchen in Beirut and the kitchen of Khayrat Bekaana Coop in El Khiara (West Beqaa). This wonderful project, which is being organized as part of the Ardi Ardak National Food Security Initiative, is providing hot meals for the victims of the August 4 explosion and distributing mouneh boxes (with essential food items) to displaced citizens who are able to cook in their kitchens or in temporary shelters.
