Yildiz Technopark Supports Suspended Meal Project for YTU Students

The ‘suspended meal’ is a social responsibility project that aims to support students during their university years and provides free meals to those in need. So how does the project work?

It is possible to leave individual meals for students on ‘suspended meal’ bulletin boards in restaurants, or with corporate sponsorship, meal names can be posted on bulletin boards by paying a collective fee. With their university student IDs, students can eat the meals on the pending lists, which are hung on bulletin boards in many restaurants and cafes on YTU Davutpaşa Campus, free of charge. Yıldız Technopark became one of the corporate sponsors by signing a special cooperation contract with Suspended Meal project. Technopark, which supports the project separately for all restaurants, is also its prime mover.

Aiming to support YTU students and those in need within the scope of social responsibility, the project has already received significant participation with the support of Technopark companies. YTU Rector Prof. Dr. Tamer YILMAZ has been one of the biggest supporters of Suspended Meal, which was initially launched as a pilot project. With the sponsorship of Yildiz Technopark, 1767 free meals were served in 2020, and 151 more in 2021 to date.
