21-3-2019

The minister of economy & trade (MoET), Mansur Bthaysh, issued a circular yesterday instructing restaurants and hotels to channel the edible food leftover to the Lebanese Food Bank, under the motto, Together Against Hunger. According to the circular, that within the framework of Sustainable Development Goals which engage joint efforts of the public and private sectors, as well as, civil society, and since social responsibility requires all institutions to contribute to supporting their communities particularly those within their geographic area. And since the Lebanese Food Bank follows a clear-cut mechanism which ensures the safety and edibility of leftover food from the time it is received to the time it is delivered to the needy and homeless persons, and since it is responsible for the safety of delivered food, therefore, we advise all eateries and hotels to cooperate with the Lebanese Food Bank to this effect. The Bank will accordingly inform them with the names of the beneficiaries. (Al Mustaqbal, March 21, 2019)
