A mobile restaurant was inaugurated on Wednesday to provide three-time meal services to the underserved people in the federal capital.

The multi-wheeler food-loaded vehicle will be utilised to make good quality and hygienically cooked food reachable to everyone throughout the year.

The visitors will be served with a variety of food and beverages prepared by a team of professional chefs in the most dignified manner, said an organiser. "The facility will not only serve the visitors with a variety of dishes but will also allow them to take food for their families at home."

The launching ceremony of the mobile restaurant in Islamabad was graced by Minister for Religious Affairs Pir Dr Noor-ul-Haq Qadri, political advisor and philanthropist Syed Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari and actor Imran Abbas.

Speakers appreciated the AAA Associates and the JDC Foundation Pakistan for launching the free mobile restaurant, saying the project was in line with the federal government’s vision of Hunger free Pakistan. They said the initiative resonates with Prime Minister Imran Khan's vision to eradicate hunger by providing free food and shelter to the deprived section of our society.

During the tour of the free mobile restaurant in Islamabad, JDC general secretary Syed Zafar Abbas Jafri showed his gratitude for this partnership with AAA Associates to become part of this cause and promised to continue his struggle to support the underserved communities of the society.

Speaking on the occasion, AAA Associates’ Managing Director Lt Col Shahzad Ali Kiani (retd) said: “We feel honoured to be part of such a noble cause that provides us with an opportunity to serve humanity. AAA Associates has been in forefront of reaching out to the deprived communities in time of need."

As we have grown to a leading group of companies of Pakistan, he added, we take it as our responsibility to bring prosperity within our community especially those who have been neglected over time. "We’ll continue our support to bring an end to hunger in Pakistan."

AAA Associates Chairman Shiekh Fawad Bashir said: "We intend to create a culture in which a business community is equally sensitive towards the well-being of their surroundings and not limited in profit-making practices. I’m glad we are heading in the right direction and this collaboration with JDC will be a step towards our ambition of socially responsible Business community of Pakistan.”
