Sponsored: The popular Asian restaurant will be distributing meals to labour camps…

Beloved homegrown eatery, and ambassador of authentic South East Asian cuisine, Vietnamese Foodies is once again rolling up its sleeves for some important community action this Ramadan.

Their 1,000 Meals initiative will take place between March 13 and 22, during the Holy Month, allocating 100 iftar meals each day to labourers in camps across the UAE.

Headed into the hands of these hard-working heroes, the fast-breaking packs will include an appetiser, a main course, a bag of fruit and a drink.

This 1000 meals initiative, underscores family-run Vietnamese Foodies’ dedication to uplifting the local community and leaving a positive imprint on the place they’ve proudly called home since opening their doors in JLT back in January 2018.

Lily Hoa Nguyen, Co-Founder and Executive Chef of Vietnamese Foodies, said: “We are delighted to be able to prepare and distribute 100 meals a day, over the course of 10 days during the Holy Month.”

“Our team is ready to ensure this is a successful project that will benefit the local community and allow us to give back to those who need it. Ramadan is a very special time of year here in the UAE and across the world, and we are looking forward to entering into the spirit of the Holy Month.”
