Talabat and Kitopi distribute 20,000 free meals in Dubai
1,000 meals a day are delivered to communities impacted by COVID-19
Food delivery aggregator Talabat and cloud kitchen platform Kitopi have teamed up to provide 20,000 meals to communities affected by the coronavirus outbreak in Dubai.
Through the partnership, Kitopi prepares 1,000 meals daily while Talabat collaborates with Dubai Police and the Dubai Health Authority to get them to the people that need them most.
Jihad Bou Nasr, country manager of Kitopi UAE, said: “These are unprecedented times that require us to think beyond ourselves. Our mission is to revolutionise the way people can access food, and for us today, that means helping to feed the most vulnerable. This initiative would not have been possible without our chefs, the local authorities and Talabat. Together, we’re determined to continue serving our communities."
Mo Yildirim, Managing Director Talabat UAE, said: “People are struggling, and it is particularly those who are living day-to-day or week-toweek who are most affected by this, who need the most help.
“We would like to thank the Dubai authorities for diligently and calmly managing the situation, Kitopi for cooking the fresh meals, but also our riders - not only for delivering these meals, but for continuing to deliver food, medicines and groceries across the emirate so people can stay home.”
