Community Life is pleased to collaborate for the first time with the Saudi Food Bank Etaam and organize a unique campaign to share our blessings with families and individuals with limited income.
Etaam was established in 2012 in Dammam as the first food bank in the Gulf and is licensed as a non-governmental organization by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Responsibility.
Every year, it saves more than three million meals from waste. It also implements quality food-related projects and distributes surplus food among beneficiaries. We hope that this partnership will impact a change in the food systems and reduce wastage.
KAUST Community Members are welcome to donate from 10 SAR to 100 SAR through the secure Etaam platform.
Donations are open until Thursday, April 6.
The first 100 baskets will be distributed at KAUST to deserving service providers . Etaam will distribute the remaining baskets to people who need them the most.
This initiative, led by the Food Safety and Quality Assurance team at Community Life, hopes to achieve the following UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Goal 2: Zero hunger
Goal 11: Sustainable cities and Community
Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals
