Our largest food giveaway project. We work along with the community food bank of NJ to give away on average of 6,000 pounds of fresh produce monthly. This feeds on average 180 - 200 families with healthy nutritious produce. We are working with the food bank to start adding cooking classes.
Local zakat is extremely important, we are required to take care of our community prior to taking care of those overseas. The cases that we get are hard to hear about. Sisters & brothers facing food insecurity or eviction or medical expenses that they can not cover.
