This was the first year that the ICP Food Bank was adopted as an MSA initiative! All MSA members routinely ran distribution every month, and some members directed the activities of the Food Bank site at the ICP! This year's directors were Wasi Mohamed, Mohammad Sajjad, Syed Kaleem, and Mariam Abdelwahab.
The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh, with the help of the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, has distributed over 144,000 pounds of food since its opening in June 2009. We serve hundreds of families, Muslims and non-Muslims, from all around the Pittsburgh area. Our site serves an average of 45 families every month.
A special thanks to Shahid Madni and Walaa of the ICP for helping to bring together donations and helping activities to run smoothly, and to APO fraternity and other community members for helping at the ICP's distributions!
