Chicago Muslims donate 21,000 lbs meat to city's needy

Salam/Peace:

For the third consecutive year, Chicago-area Muslims have made one of the Food Depository’s single largest annual meat donations. More than 21,000 pounds of Halal beef was donated in January and made available to all of the Food Depository’s pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout Cook County. The Muslim community annually has come together for “Sacrifice for Our Neighbors” during the holiday of Eid al-Adha. Meat is among the Food Depository’s most sought-after food items because it is perishable and higher-priced.
