Educational Day with Amel

October 10th, 2019 Posted by News No Comment yet

Part 1 of 3 Last Saturday, a group of our hunger heroes went Al the way to Al Khiam area in the South to help serve 200 lunch boxes to Lebanese and Syrian kids! It took us almost 2 hours to get to the place where we we’re to prepare the food and then transport that to the main event which was organized by Amel Association and took place in the village’s indoor sport facility! Our job entailed three steps. Step one was preparing the food. We had so much fun during this step. Some of the volunteers have never cooked before. We managed to prepare around 200 sandwiches! We had salvaged these carton lunch boxes from a food rescue that we had two weeks ago! Instead of recycling these cardboard boxes, we decided to reuse them! Each lunch box contained a main meal, fruit, juice and two snacks! The boxes were prepped and filled by our hunger heroes!! Hisham and Maya from Amel association helped as well! After preparing the food and putting it into 200 lunch boxes and goodie bags, some of us got into Amel’s van and the others in FoodBlessed’s mobile! As we arrived, the Lebanese kids were already in the buses that will drop them home so we disturbuted their lunch in the buses. The Syrian kids were waiting for us at the event where we distributed the meals ! Everyone had a great time that day especially the students with lots of activities that Amel had prepared for them. We are happy we were able to help out Amel with the food! •••• يوم السبت الماضي ، ذهبت مجموعة من أبطال الجوع لدينا إلى منطقة الخيام في الجنوب للمساعدة في تقديم 200 صندوق غداء للأطفال اللبنانيين والسوريين! استغرقنا ساعتين تقريبًا للوصول إلى المكان الذي قمنا فيه باعداد الطعام ثم نقله إلى الحدث الرئيسي الذي نظمته جمعية عامل والذي عقد في القاعة الرياضية الداخلية للقرية! قسمنا عملنا الى ثلاث خطوات. الخطوة الأولى كانت تحضير الطعام. استمتعنا كثيرا خلال هذه الخطوة. بعض المتطوعين لم يطبخوا من قبل. تمكنا من إعداد حوالي 200 سندويش! لقد أنقذنا صناديق الغداء الكرتونية هذه من إنقاذ غذائي كان لدينا قبل أسبوعين! بدلاً من إعادة تدوير صناديق الكرتون هذه ، قررنا إعادة استخدامها! كل صندوق طعام يحتوي على وجبة رئيسية ، فواكه ، عصير ، ووجبتين خفيفتين! كانت الصناديق جاهزة ومملوءة من قبل أبطال الجوع وجاهزة للخطوة الثانية!! ساعد هشام ومايا من جمعية عامل كذلك في التحضير. بعد إعداد الطعام ووضعه في 200 صندوق غداء وأكياس للطعام ، ركب بعضنا في سيارة عامل والآخرين في سيارة فودبلسد! عندما وصلنا ، كان الأطفال اللبنانيون في الحافلات التي ستنزلهم إلى منازلهم ، لذا فقد وزعنا عليهم الوجبات في الباصات. كان الأطفال السوريون ينتظروننا في الملعب الذي وزعنا فيه الوجبات! قضى الجميع وقتًا رائعًا في ذلك اليوم خاصةً الطلاب الذين مان عامل قد أعد لهم باقة من النشاطات التربوية. نحن سعداء لأننا تمكنا من مساعدة جمعية عامل في هذا النشاط الجميل !!

Following a post by @beirutsbrightside , a couple of weeks, @mayaterro and @juliasemaan met and talked about how FoodBlessed and Mission Village can work together! Not long after, we got a call from Julia! She needed some hunger hero power! These pictures were taken when our hunger heroes joined hands with the heroes at @missionvillage to prepare meals for those in need! The team convened at mission village’s premise in dekeeneh. There, together they prepared hearty meals and packed them to go! The meals were distributed to homeless and underprivileged individuals and families! We are so proud of this collaboration and look forward to future ones with this beautiful new organization!
