Doorstep Delivery with No Contact

Individuals simply call the regional office requesting specific items from the pantry and staff creates boxes or bags. Then, volunteers go to the recipient’s home, ring the doorbell, and walk away to ensure no contact.

According to research done by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 49 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 raises awareness of the hunger epidemic facing our nation as a whole.
