Most of our recipients are local families on government subsidies whose food stamp benefits do not suffice for an entire month. As these food stamps run out by the third week of the month, Rahima steps in to supplement basic food items such as rice, flour, grains, pasta, cooking oil, tuna, halal chicken, halal meat, canned food, and fresh produce(seasonal vegetables and fruits). In order to be fair and equitable to all our recipients, we purchase the items in bulk and distribute the same items to all the families.
Every other month we also provide hygiene packs consisting of toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, soap, and toilet paper.
We are currently providing food to about 400 families.
