Nestlé NIDO® has partnered with Food Banking Regional Network (FBRN) to eliminate hunger from the Middle East by 2020, to start delivering glasses of milk to children from across the region including Lebanon, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq.
“We are pleased to have found the right partner to distribute the 7 million glasses of milk to children in need. The campaign aims to create a positive impact in communities that are in need by contributing to the diets of children through the provisions of daily Nestlé NIDO® Fortified milk for these kids.” said George Badaro, Head of Dairy Business at Nestlé Middle East.
