According to research done by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 43 million Americans live in “food insecure” households meaning they don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. To alleviate the national hunger crisis hitting families across America, ICNA Relief has established its hunger prevention program to help both individuals and families from going hungry. ICNA Relief utilizes its full resources to launch effective programs that target impoverished communities thereby bringing life, nourishment and hope one meal at a time.
ICNA Relief’s national Hunger Prevention program provides individuals and families with the fuel to survive and thrive. Following the ordinance of Allah to feed the needy, ICNA Relief’s development of key public food assistance services raise awareness of the hunger epidemic facing our nation as a whole.
The various hunger relief initiatives of ICNA Relief are aimed at raising community awareness thereby launching efforts to address this growing epidemic. On average, we feed over a 100,000 people every year across 15 cities through the following services:
- Mercy on Wheels
- Food Pantries
- Food Drives
- Ramadan Food Baskets
- Qurbani/Udhiyah Meat Distribution
- Feed the Hungry Campaigns for the Homeless
