PASWO has been at the forefront of the Hunger Prevention Program since 2005, serving people across the country. Guided by the directive to provide nourishment to those in need as ordained by Allah (SWT), PASWO has established essential public food assistance initiatives to increase awareness of the widespread issue of hunger in the nation.
Over the past two years, PASWO has been dedicated to collaborating with the USDA, Congress, and prominent food bank networks throughout the country. Our focus has been on offering guidance and expertise to enhance the availability of halal food choices within the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). Our overarching objective is to increase the variety of halal protein options within the program.
The program utilizes initiatives such as Ramadan Food Boxes, the Iftar Distribution Program, Udhiya / Qurbani meat distribution, and Mercy On Wheels. Our Hunger Prevention programs have played a crucial role in offering assistance to numerous individuals, including single mothers, senior citizens, refugee families, the homeless, and other members of the local community.
