Dubai Cares collaborates with seven chefs

Seven dishes for seven emirates, each for a good cause. That is the premise behind the “Dine. Feed. Educate” initiative promoted by award-winning cookbook author Flavel Monteiro in collaboration with Dubai Cares.

Until December 31, diners who order the particular dish created for this initiative, which is served in seven restaurants in Dubai, will contribute to the global school feeding programs for disadvantaged children in which Dubai Cares is actively involved.

“The United Arab Emirates has a rich history of coming together to support global issues. This fundraising initiative is a reminder of the hunger and food security challenges facing many countries today. Diners can ensure that children benefit from a life of equal opportunity,” said Abdulla Ahmed Alshehhi, Dubai Cares COO.

“This is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children for whom school meals are the only way to attend and stay in school. You can enjoy exceptional dishes from acclaimed chefs, while supporting school feeding programs. So, together, let’s have dinner, feed and educate”, said Monteiro, who was the promoter of the Jubilee Gastronomy Series of Michelin Award-winning Chefs at Expo 2020 Dubai. Consequently, it has managed to attract seven of the best restaurants in Dubai for this initiative.
