FAITH Social Services’ annual Herndon without Hunger program will help feed about 4,000 individuals from throughout the area this Ramadan.
FAITH Social Services 8th annual Herndon without Hunger program is estimated to serve about 4,000 individuals in the next few weeks, providing them with food staples.
Iman Khatib and Somayyah Ghariani, coordinators for the program, said the food distribution program happens once a week for four weeks during Ramadan.
Khatib and Ghariani said for those organizers and volunteers who are Muslim, the program is especially significant and feeds their spirit because they spend their days fasting during Ramadan, while feeding community members in need.
FAITH is a nonprofit that started about 11 years ago as an informal group at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, before becoming a nonprofit.
The Herndon without Hunger program was operating out of the Herndon Fortnightly Library for the past few years, but has moved to Herndon Middle School this year so the organization can more easily serve more people in need.
