Our fight against hunger
Two meals a day for the poor is a small contribution But, even small contributions can make a big difference. An unprecedented initiative providing FREE meals, twice a day, to more than 35,000 people throughout Pakistan. Opening 12 more Dastarkhwans in addition to 6 already operational outlets. Overall spending of PKR 30 million rupees on providing 10,500,000 meals annually.
This project is most dearest to me. We are Alhamdulillah providing free daily meals to more than 35,000 people daily, twice a day. We will Inshallah be opening 12 more Dastarkhwans in addition to 6 already operational. I am very thankful to God Almighty for having me privileged enough to be able to serve others.” Malik Raiz Hussain, Chairman Bahria Town. Above and beyond the contribution of Bahria Town in different sectors, now Bahria Town has come up with a new social project of Bahria Dastarkhwan to feed the underprivileged people, who are unable to get the basic food. Bahria Town Dastarkhwan is providing free meals, twice a day, daily to people. Its impact is not only felt by the poor who come and eat there but also by the families they have left behind who benefit from the hard earned money which they save on each free meal.
Every person who attends our Dastarkhwan is treated as a guest, so as not to hurt his integrity, and served with quality & hygienic food on tables in air-conditioned halls with separate arrangements for males & females. The doors are open for everyone. There is no restriction on people or quantity of food asked by each.
Each Dastarkhwan has its own kitchen in its premises. Fresh food is prepared daily by the staff. Food is prepared in an hygienic manner. The menu keeps rotating with pulses & meat. Halwa as a dessert is also added on Sundays. During the Holy Month of Ramadan special iftar is also served.
Special security arrangements are made to avoid any unpleasant incident. Walk through gates are installed. Male and female security personnel are deputed to check gents and ladies respectively. Fire brigade staff with vehicles and medical staff are also deputed.
