Zambrero’s top executives recently visited the city of Danang in Vietnam to see its Plate 4 Plate humanitarian program in action.
The Zambrero team spent two days visiting a school, kindergarten and an elderly women’s home with its aid distribution partners Children of Vietnam and Stop Hunger Now.
At the Thanh Tam School for 300 children with special needs they helped serve soup made from the Plate 4 Plate meal pack of rice, soy, lentils and vitamins.
General Manager Karim Messih said: “This trip was really inspiring to me as it was an opportunity to see the kids who benefit in a real life environment really enjoying our food and being so grateful for its provision through Plate 4 Plate.”
Zambrero funds aid projects worldwide through its Plate 4 Plate initiative. For each burrito or bowl meal Zambrero sells in one of its Mexican restaurants, it donates one meal to someone in need.
Zambrero CEO Stuart Cook also participated in the Vietnam mission and said: “Providing a hot meal during school in developing nations like Vietnam gives parents an incentive to send their children to school. This helps ensure a child receives an education, which Zambrero and Stop Hunger Now believe is the first step in breaking the poverty cycle that will otherwise determine the trajectory of that child’s life.”
