Various ways to support

In the past few days, teachers and students of Hue Tourism College have prepared hundreds of meals to support people undergoing medical isolation in the city. This is the "Meal of Love" program launched by the school's Board of Directors which received the support of funds and efforts from a large number of staff and students in the school.

To prepare nutritious meals, with proper food safety and hygiene, the school has called for the support from more than 50 members who are Trade Union officials and the Youth Union and students of the school. Food is carefully selected from buying, preparing, processing and storing food samples. The cooking process is done right in the practical kitchen area of the school.

But he had the strength. He was studying cooking, so when his teachers announced that they would be participating in the meal preparation process, he and his friends signed up right away.

Mr. Vu Hoai Phuong, Rector of Hue Tourism College, said that the school was continuing to call for individuals and units inside and outside the school to support in the prevention and control of the pandemic. Depending on funding and resources, such as rice, cooking oil, dried food, etc., the school will organize appropriate programs and activities. The staff and students were always ready to volunteer when needed.
