While we contemplate our own hunger during Ramadan, we also become mindful of the hunger our neighbors face every day throughout the year.
The prophet Muhammad taught that Muslims cannot let their fellow neighbors go to bed with empty stomachs while their own stomachs are full.
Despite these basic teachings, people are as hungry as ever—not just around the world, but here in Virginia. 670,000 people need help putting food on the table. Over 204,000 students live in food insecure homes.
With these teachings in mind and with the state of our hungry neighbors, we hope you’ll join us in our mission to end hunger in Virginia. Your support will allow us to reach all our low-income neighbors in the Commonwealth and make sure their schools and communities have implemented the right programs to make sure no family goes hungry. Join us in our effort.
