In collaboration with the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC), FHF is currently working closely with ladies from 2 associations (Nusroto in Zahle & The Orthodox Orphanage in Tripoli) to establish two new community kitchens that will mainly provide food assistance to vulnerable Syrian refugee and Lebanese families.

The teams of ladies cooks in both areas (around 15 women) were trained by FHF members on the latest food safety standards, healthy nutrition, kitchen management and menu development.

Accordingly, the 2 new kitchens will very soon be filled with smells of richta, hommous b burghur, wheat with laban and many more traditional healthy recipes that were chosen by the ladies themselves to feed around 250 families in Zahle and Tripoli.

This program aims to improve the livelihoods of the ladies cooks leading the kitchens while alleviating food insecurity and enhancing dietary diversity of vulnerable refugee and local families. These kitchens could also be turned into small business enterprises at a later stage to sustain their activities and ensure revenues to the ladies’ teams.
