The Need for Hunger Van
“The legal definition of hunger is that a person is hungry if he or she doesn’t know from where the next meal will be coming. In fact, 49 millions people in the US are hungry. I realized that soup kitchens only help those who live near the soup kitchen. What about the people who live under the bridge, or at the train station? There are homeless people right in our backyard, who get nothing to eat. As a Muslim, I cannot go to bed if my neighbor is still hungry. This type of work is not just about feeding it is about engaging people to get involved in their communities.” Zamir Hassan, Founder of Hunger Van.
