Over 45% of the population is estimated to be living below the poverty line in 2020
Over 45% of the population is estimated to be living below the poverty line in 2020, with the majority of Lebanese struggling to cope with food price inflation and loss of livelihoods. Worsening living conditions have left the most vulnerable families at heightened risk of food insecurity.
In these trying times for Lebanon, we would like to thank Strategy& Middle East for supporting our efforts to help fight food insecurity. With their support, we are providing over 600 meals a week to those who need them the most in Beirut, with over 3,000 meals offered so far.
In addition to providing direct relief to vulnerable families, our Community Kitchen provides short-term employment opportunities for youth whose jobs have been impacted by the crisis. Our Youth Program supports with food purchasing, meal preparation and food distribution. Through their work in the Community Kitchen, youth also learn employability and basic project management skills.
