What we do
Nearly 25% of Philadelphia’s population lived below the poverty line in 2018. According to the 2018 Philadelphia hunger report, the number of people struggling against hunger in Philadelphia increased by 22 percent over the last six years. 239,627 adults in the Philadelphia metropolitan region were working from 2015- 2017 but were still food insecure. There is an increasing share of residents struggling to cover the most fundamental necessities. Philadelphia among the highest poverty rates on a national level.
Our goal is to develop and implement programs addressing food insecurity in collaboration with local community partners. Muslims Serve does this primarily by providing free, hot, nutritious meals. This is done with the goal to bring comfort to those in need and to relieve hunger in our city.
Part of our mission is to collaborate with local community partners. We do this by strategically activating volunteers in various locations to become feeding sites for the segment of their members that need help the most. We provide the training and the resources for you to become the change you want to see. Apply to become a partner today!
How we work
Muslims Serve is committed to helping people in need of all backgrounds and creeds, and we can’t do it without your support. As we serve, we have the pleasure of welcoming both Muslim and Non-Muslim communities. Our hunger-relief organization relies on donations and volunteers to change the fate of thousands.
Feeding people and supporting those in need is full-time work that never ends. We understand that not everyone has the time to be on the ground with us and luckily there is another way you can help. Through your donations, our staff and volunteers can sustain the work we do. Food costs money and the time of the people preparing it and running our operations has value. Without your financial support, we can’t empower communities and create change. Something as little as $1 a day or the cost of a cup of coffee goes such a long way. Donate today and join the movement of community healing.Our Guidestar Profile
