This event was originally created by Fatima Syed.
Greetings of peace and blessing,
With Ramadan approaching, we pray our Creator allows us to fully reap the rewards of the blessed month. God willing, we are coordinating a Feed the Less Fortunate breakfast/brunch during Ramadan and would love your participation. Last event, we fed over 200 people and our volunteers loved it so much, they wanted it to become a recurring event. Our location is directly across the street from the homeless shelter, so there will be plenty of people to feed unfortunately.
Parents remember, we love seeing the young ones out there as well. We will definitely get them involved.
"(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan and the captive for the love of God, saying: 'We feed you for the sake of God Alone; we seek from you neither reward nor thanks.'" - The Holy Quran, 76:8-9
The idea is for this to be a pot luck style event with everyone preparing a dish. Insha’Allah this method allows us to have a lot of food without anyone exerting too much energy. Attached is a link to a Google document that tracks who will be bringing what item below. Volunteers will be needed to serve, set up, and clean up, so if you are interested in doing so, please indicate that in the Google document below.
Jazak’Allahu Khair for any effort contributed towards feeding of the less fortunate.
