Faith Social Services

Herdon without Hunger

FAITH Social Services in Virginia launched their annual Herndon without Hunger program to hand out food items to people of all faiths and ethnicities that need them last weekend and the program continues each Saturday afternoon in Ramadan. A group of sisters and I carpooled over there today to volunteer and alhamdulillah there was a good turnout.

FAITH also has an iftar program which allows you to sponsor iftars for an individual or a family throughout the month of Ramadan.

  1. Wow, that’s great. Was there a good turnout of non-Muslims who needed food? I love this new trend in Islamic social services for all. It’s charity, and that’s valuable and important in itself, but there’s also the “See? I don’t want to kill you, I want to feed you! Here, have another can of green beans.” factor, which is helpful in times like these.

  2. Asalamu alaykum Cozy Sister,

    I don’t remember a name as unique as yours commenting on my blog before, so welcome to Muslim Apple.

    I would say that by far, the majority of the people that came for the food were non-Muslims while the majority of the volunteers were Muslims.

    Ramadan Kareem.
