provide them with a meal when they are hungry
provide them essential food parcels containing staple and nutritious foods
With little money, jobs or possessions, those living in poverty and refugees displaced from their homes around the world, rely on the generosity of others to ensure at least one meal a day for their families. Refugees are also subject to limited status, many are not allowed to work, and are solely reliant on food parcels to feed their families. There are hundreds of thousands like this, and sadly, if people do not donate, they may not be able to provide their children with a meal when they are hungry.
With teams on the ground in Gaza, Lebanon, Jordan, India, Pakistan, Yemen and Bangladesh, we respond to food shortages wherever they may arise by providing essential food parcels containing staple and nutritious long-life foods that can last a family of up to six, one month.
The contents of a food parcel generally include flour, rice, sugar, oil, tea, canned goods, spices, lentils, beans and dates; however, they differ from country to country depending on their respective diets.
Healthy Lunches Project
Diet and nutrition can play an important role in the performance of a child and their overall educational attainment. This is why a healthy and nutritious school lunch is important.
At GRF we provide school children living in impoverished communities, with a healthy and nourishing lunch at school. For many of them, this is the only hot meal they will have in a day, so we make sure it’s a healthy one, giving them sustenance for the rest of their day, and helping them stay attentive and focused at school.
