Food Packages Help Families in Need During Ramadan

Moroccan Malika Abumarek walked into the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, to pick up some food during Ramadan.

The grandmother appreciates the extra supplies, like flour and cans of tuna, for her immigrant family who are often just scraping by.

The food is donated by Islamic Relief USA, an Alexandria, Virginia, nonprofit that for 25 years has been providing food and humanitarian assistance worldwide, now to more than 40 countries.

Abumarek opened a box full of nonperishable items and placed them into two royal blue bags to carry home.

“I am happy to see the basics we cook with like rice, sugar, and oil,” she said. “The food is also helping my friends who live nearby and also need help.”

During Ramadan (May 15-June 15 this year) Islamic Relief USA is supplying thousands of the special food packages to people in need in northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., area, as well as cities in Texas, New Jersey and Illinois.
