Ramadan Food Distribution in Philadelphia

Philadelphia, one of America’s major cities, has been struggling with poverty for decades.

Over the past five years, Zakat Foundation of America has organized several programs such as food drives and Iftars for the city and its surrounding areas.

This Ramadan was no different as Zakat Foundation of America volunteers teamed up with Feed Philly to distribute nearly 500 food packages to those in most need.

Despite a long day of fasting, volunteers from various masjids gathered at the Philadelphia Masjid to prepare the kits before distributing them.

The beneficiaries included inner-city families as well as refugees resettling in the Lancaster area.
