Vietnamese Foodies announces 1,500 meals Ramadan initiative

On March 20th 2024, homegrown Vietnamese Foodies restaurants will distribute 1500 meals to those in need in Dubai, working alongside licensed charity Dubai Good Will.  Vietnamese Foodies aims to extend a helping hand to the hardworking individuals by providing an Iftar that will include an appetiser, a main course, a bag of fruit and a drink.

The 1500 meals initiative is part of Vietnamese Foodies’ commitment to uplifting the local community and leaving a positive impact on the place it’s proudly called home since opening its doors in JLT back in January 2018. The initiative is aimed at supporting individuals who have devoted themselves to enhancing the community. It’s their way of giving back during the holy month, reflecting their commitment to truly making a difference.

Lily Hoa Nguyen, Co-Founder and Executive Chef of Vietnamese Foodies, said: “We are delighted to be able to prepare and distribute 1,500 meals during the Holy Month. Our team is ready to ensure this is a successful project which will benefit the local community and allow us to give back to those who need it. Ramadan is a very special time of year here in the UAE and across the world, and we are looking forward to entering into the spirit of the Holy Month.”

Vietnamese Foodies is a family-run business with seven restaurants around Dubai,  inspired by the vibrancy of Saigon city. Vietnamese Foodies is known for its authentic, fresh, and delicious dishes at accessible prices. On a mission to bring the most authentic Vietnamese cuisine to people outside of Vietnam, popular dishes include Pho which brothhas been simmered for 14 hours, Banh Mi and Goi Cuon (rice paper rolls).

The Ramadan initiative will run on March 20th 2024. Meals will be distributed from Al Futaim Mosque  in Dubai with the aim to spread kindness during this holy month.
