BAY AREA, CA — The Zakat Foundation of America will deliver roughly 35,000 pounds of fresh produce to a mosque in East Oakland this weekend to support food-insecure families.

The foundation will hold a free distribution at the Masjidul Waritheen mosque, the oldest mosque in the city. The event is intended to be an opportunity for healing amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racism and the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
