FHF established Al Hiraki Kitchen in Malaak’s school for Syrian Refugees in Minyara, Akkar in May 2016. The idea was to provide healthy meals to around 250 children attending the school to help them through their growth and learning process and offer them nutritious food they probably lack or have limited access to at home.

Accordingly, 2 empty classrooms were turned into a community kitchen were a team of 15 Syrian girls and mothers would prepare hot meals and sandwiches on a daily basis. A set of training on food safety, healthy nutrition, recipes’ standardization and menu development were provided to the kitchen’s team by FHF.
