April 11, 2021

Free food service under the 'Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye’ (EKBNS) program has been formally expanded to Faisalabad, Lahore and Peshawar. 

Chief Ministers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab inaugurated the program in their respective provinces while Prime Minister Imran Khan virtually witnessed the ceremony from Islamabad.

The concept of truck kitchens 'Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye' (EKBNS) was launched by the Prime Minister last month under the umbrella of Ehsaas to serve free meal boxes twice a day to daily wage earners in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Till now meals have been distributed among over 37 thousand people.

The delivery of free meals will help the poor, deserving, laborers and piece-rate workers save their hard-earned money to feed their children and families.

The programme will be up scaled to other parts of the country later this year in phases. EKBNS truck kitchens are well equipped with safe cooking appliances and it is designed to serve healthy meals.

The 'Ehsaas Koi Bhooka Na Soye' program will explicitly target those who cannot access Ehsaas Panagahs and Ehsaas Langars.

EKBNS is Prime Minister Imran Khan's vision for the year 2021 and he had committed his resolution for the year 2021 that EKBNS would be rolled out to make sure that no one goes to bed empty stomach.

Each truck will feed 1,500 to 2000 people daily on designated service points.
