Food Vest Holding, owners of the brands Caribou Coffee Bahrain and Fuddruckers, expressed their appreciation for the efforts of Team Bahrain in keeping the country safe with their round-the-clock work combatting the coronavirus (COVID-19). “It is a trying time for all of us,” said Food Vest general manager Mateo Ramos. “Everyone is affected by this pandemic – from governments, businesses, employees, students and the general public.

“Despite this difficult situation, it paved the way for people to work together and unite. As a business, we are also affected, but in our own little way, Caribou Coffee and Fuddruckers through Education Plus would like to pay tribute to the Supreme Council for Women (SCW) for their tireless efforts in helping Bahraini families through their ‘Together for Bahrain’s Safety’ campaign. We hope that with this little gesture, we can give them some sort of motivation to continue their inspiring efforts in helping the community.”

SCW Administrative and Media Affairs director Ezzedine Khalil Al Moayad commented: “We would like to thank Food Vest for supporting us and for their appreciation of the work that we do. It is a good encouragement for us and our volunteers.” Starting this week, Caribou Coffee and Fuddruckers are also scheduled to donate more than 1,000 food packs and goods as a form of support to the community. One is through KHK Heroes for migrant workers who are gravely affected by this pandemic. The other is by distributing free coffee and meals to the medical front-liners who are risking their lives in treating COVID-19 patients.
