Project Hunger is a mission to give food to those who are in need or living on the streets. With a long term goal of establishing our very own food pantry and/or soup kitchen, Hikmah Relief is currently volunteering at local food pantries and depositories around the Chicagoland Area. Soon, we hope to be teaming up with local restaurants for daily food donations to be donated to homeless shelters, food pantries, and refugee centers.
Hikmah Relief volunteered at A Just Harvest, the largest and self-operating soup kitchen in the Chicago metro area. We were given the opportunity to serve a hot meal to anyone in need and served up to 100 people, including children. With the It was an eye-opening and humbling experience and being given a chance to talk and interact with them gave us a greater outlook on what our Project really stands for.
Hikmah Relief has teamed up with local organizations to create care packages of essential supplies with food, drinks, and basic necessities to hand out over the Chicagoland area for those who are currently living on the streets or in need of these supplies. These care packages will be in reusable bags and will contain daily essential items such as water bottles, toothbrushes, feminine products, and perishable food and drink items.
