Saving Food

Main aim of the charity

This charitable work might aim to end hunger and poverty by providing high-quality meals to the people in need and spreading the culture of saving food from wastage

How the employee got involved and why

We heard about the Saudi Food Bank and loved the idea! The Saudi Food Bank is in charge of collecting quality food from restaurants and hotels and distributing it to people in need. We contacted them, and they were more than welcome and pleased to have us as a part of their team. We aim to give back to the community and help those in need. By joining the Saudi Food Bank, we will spread more awareness about the importance of not throwing the extra , quality and not expired food.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Etaam is a charitable organization that collects quality meals, and delivers them to beneficiaries recommended by charities. We participated in the packaging of these meals, then we helped in distributing these meals to the people in need as well as different charities.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Winning this award would help us spread this cause among people in DHL. It will allow them to know more about the Saudi Food Bank, and understand the importance of saving food and helping people in need. It might also encourage them to participate in such causes. It would also spread more awareness and inform our employees that giving and helping those in need shouldn’t be disregarded. Giving back to the community and helping those in need creates a profoundly positive impact on the world. By winning, our company (DHL) will be associated with great cause and our customers will view our brand in a more positive image.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

Winning will allow me to take the responsibility to implement this initiative in our DHL culture. I would love to see more people take care of the leftover food from our events, town halls, meetings...etc. and deliver it to charity. Giving food and helping those in need will also allow us to understand the importance of generosity and encouraging others to come together for a good cause. This initiative will also allow them to understand that seeking to serve and help others can also directly benefit the volunteers themselves. By winning, it will also help me establish a stronger community within DHL.
