ICNA has declared October 21, 2010 as "Skip a Lunch Day", and is requesting people to donate the cost of one lunch to ICNA Relief's feeding program.
Print the campaign's brochures, flyers, or posters and distribute them at your local mosques, Islamic centers, schools and stores.
Let us know what your community is doing to fight hunger, and we'll spread the word.
If you're an Imam or can request an Imam, then please have the next Jumuah khutbah (Friday sermon) delivered on the importance of social justice and fighting hunger.
Click here for sample khutbah and here for guidelines.
Click here to see the confirmed khutbahs.
Once a khutbah is confirmed please fill out our form or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the date, location and the Khateeb's name.
Feed the hungry in your community using these guidelines.
Sign up to volunteer with ICNA. We'll send you e-mails on volunteer opportunities in your area.
Collect cans for our "Can Hunger" drive and invite a local food bank to the Islamic center to pick up the collected items.
Designate a specific mosque where cans can be delivered.
Garner media coverage by notifying news outlets of where and when the food bank will pick up your items. Be sure to take pictures of your event for the ICNA website.
Attend candidate forums in your city to question government officials on the state of food security in your region and what is being done about it.
