Qatar backs World Central Kitchen to donate over 27,000 meals across U.S during Ramadan

Qatar’s Embassy in the U.S is backing World Central Kitchen (WCK), a global non-profit organization to donate more than 27,000 meals across the country during Ramadan, Business Wire reports.
Meshal bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Gulf country’s envoy to the U.S in a statement said the mission will join forces with Chef José Andrés, WCK founder.
“Ramadan is a very special time for the Muslim community. It represents a season of giving and charity. We are honored to partner with Chef José Andrés and World Central Kitchen to join in their ongoing pursuit of food security for communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said the Ambassador.
“Our hope is that by creating greater awareness of those in need, we will inspire others to do the same and participate in the tradition of giving.”
The donations will support communities affected by the covid-19 pandemic which is entering its second year.
“At World Central Kitchen, we believe that a plate of food is so much more than just a meal – it is hope and dignity, our way of saying that we care and we will be here for each other in this difficult time. This generous support from the Embassy of Qatar and His Excellency Ambassador Meshal will help us to provide tens of thousands of meals to communities in need as we continue to fight hunger together,” said Chef José Andrés.
Founded in 2010, WCK uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond, the organization’s website says.
