The eateries will provide an average of 13,360 meals a day to the campaign that aims to feed individuals and families.

Fifty eateries in the UAE have collectively contributed over 400,000 meals to '10 million meals', the country's largest food distribution drive.

The eateries will provide an average of 13,360 meals a day to the campaign that aims to feed individuals and families financially affected by the Covid-19 outbreak.

Cash and in-kind donations have been pouring in for the humanitarian campaign that was launched last week by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

While businessmen and entities have pledged millions of dirhams in cash, the campaign has also received unique donations like a million bananas and two tones of apples.

Meanwhile, the Roads and Transport Authority announced that it has allocated 30 taxis to distribute thousands of meals to beneficiaries of the campaign.
