“Have you seen him who denies religion? It is he who thrusts the orphan away and does
not urge others to feed the needy.” (107: 1-3)
In many ways, America is the land of plenty but even in our own backyards,
hunger is an unfortunate reality for many Americans. People in every
community face the risk of going hungry. According to a recent report,
49 million Americans struggle with hunger, including 17 million children. (www.feedingamerica.org)
ICNA Relief USA supports a mobile feeding program that provides hot meals,
redeemable food vouchers at local grocery stores, Ramadan food baskets,
Zabeeha meat, and emergency help to the homeless and poor. We also have food pantries
(with trained staff distributing food to needy individuals and
families) in New York, Boston, Florida, Detroit, Atlanta, New Jersey, Houston and Chicago.
Please donate generously to our Hunger Prevention program.
