Kabul, Afghanistan—August 29, 2018—The Bayat Foundation once again demonstrated its heartfelt commitment to nourish and support Afghan families, by distributing 172,800 pre-packaged meals to children and their families living in Kabul and the surrounding regions.

Every year, The Bayat Foundation’s Food and Nutritional Assistance Program provides hundreds of thousands of meals to Afghans. The program is a vital part of the Foundation’s family assistance initiatives, which provide Afghan families and children, with meals, clothing, school supplies and other basic necessities.  Each Meal Kit contains pre-packaged, shelf stable, easily prepared meals that are fortified with proteins, vitamins and other essential nutrients. The Bayat Foundation’s staff worked in partnership with local schools, to ensure that the food assistance reached the largest possible number of students and their families.

Darulaman High School was the launch point for the Foundation’s food assistance initiative. There, Foundation Staff, the School’s Instructors and Students helped distribute much needed food assistance to the school’s students and their families.

In addition to distributing meals, Bayat Foundation staff conducted on-site cooking demonstrations, which taught the students and others receiving the food assistance, how to prepare the meals, so that each meal served to their families provided the highest nutritional value.
