ACTNews, SLEMAN – The Humanity Food Truck from Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) visited Yogyakarta on Monday (12/2). Located at Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII), 500 meal packages were served. The meal packages were cooked in the Humanity Food Truck’s mobile kitchen.
ACT Yogyakarta Branch Manager Bagus Suryanto said the free meal service held at the UII campus was a form of ACT’s appreciation for the university who has always been involved in many humanitarian activities with ACT.
"ACT and UII have often carried out various humanitarian actions, one of which is the distribution of clean water during the drought that hit Yogyakarta in 2019," he explained.
A total of 500 servings of meal packages were served to the students and campus staff. The cooking of the meals was done with the assistance from Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia and Humanity Food Truck’s chefs. The mobile kitchen can cook up to 1,500 meal packages.
UII Rector Fathul Wahid said the collaboration between ACT and UII was very good, especially in the field of humanitarianism. He hopes this cooperation will continue. "Hopefully the activity in this campus can be a blessing for all," hoped Fathul.
Fathul added, responding to the humanitarian crisis that occurred in Palestine, UII plans to distribute aid to Palestine through ACT to help the Palestinian population who were the victims of the conflict.
Previously, the Humanity Food Truck distributed meal packages in Gunungkidul, at Anshorullah Islamic Boarding School and Suciati Saliman Mosque. Hundreds of students and worshipers of the mosque savored the meal packages.
