Driven by the need to reduce hunger on the one side, and tackle the issue of food waste in Lebanon on the other, Maya cofounded FoodBlessed in 2012. FoodBlessed is a community-based, volunteer-driven, local, non-profit organization that works on fighting food poverty while tackling and raising awareness on the issue of food waste in Lebanon. In 2012, FoodBlessed was awarded the ‘CSR in Action’ Award for the category ‘Best Social Project on CSR’ by Al Ahli Group and Ecole Superior des Affairs. In over two years, FoodBlessed was able to serve over 188 000 meals that were either prepared through community cookouts, surplus food rescued from events and/or surplus vegetables and fruits salvaged from dumpsters and local markets. She also is the winner of “Al-Zaim”, a revolutionary political reality-television show, leading her to run for the Lebanese Parliamentary elections.
