Stop Hunger NOW!

Stop Hunger NOW!

Today – Saturday April 20th 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina–aMuslima and PearlsOfHope (POH) participated in Stop The Hunger Now effort Hosted by the Islamic Association of Raleigh Youth. After praying Dhuhur everyone got together at the Gymnasium of IAR and worked together to join the movement to Stop Hunger Now! We all worked together and packaged up 10,000 meals to be sent to children and families that need it!

Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The organization is driven by a vision of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program provides volunteers the opportunity to package dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that are used primarily to support development programs and to save lives in developing countries around the world.

You and your local school, group, community or even neighborhood can join this movement too! Click here for information on how to host a Stop the Hunger Now event

Ummzaytun represents versatility as it is the Mother of Olives. The Olive fruit is an extremely durable, versatile and delectable fruit. It is the base of many foods yet it can also be the centerpiece. I love this name because in many ways it represents me. With the graciousness of Allah SWT I am blessed to be a wife, a mother of two wonderful boys (Masha Allah!), a family Chef, completed my MBA, got a great career and now have The opportunities that have been presented to me up till this point have all been self indulgent however this time around the opportunity is to serve and give back to my sisters in Islam and empower them with stories, life experiences and a warm community experience.
