Islamic Resources

Islamic Relief USA

Islamic Relief USA again joins the Alliance to End Hunger, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United NationsOxfam America and other U.S. and international organizations to fight hunger with a World Food Day campaign on Thursday, October 16, 2014, which arrives just after the close of the Udhiyah/Qurbani season and Eid Al-Adha this year. On that day, participants around the world host dinners and share recipes to foster conversations about where food comes from, who cultivates it and how the food system can be more just and stable for everyone.

The goal of World Food Day is to raise awareness about hunger, agriculture and food systems. Islamic Relief USA is dedicated to working to repair our food system by advocating for better food production and distribution methods and by supporting local markets. Last year, we made this DOWNLOADABLE CUSTOMIZED PLACEMAT so that community members could bring World Food Day to their tables. Check this out for additional ways to take action. And read “What Does Veterinary Training Have to do with Hunger?” to learn how your food aid support is helping people like Mohammed all around the world.
