HOUSTON CHRONICLE – Houston area Ahmadi Muslim youth group distributes food to people in need amid the pandemic
Ahmadi Muslim youth and volunteers organize a drive-thru food pantry at Baitus Samee Mosque in Houston, serving over 500 cars.
Local Ahmadi Muslim youth and volunteers started organizing the drive-thru food pantry around 7:30 a.m., when the Houston Food Bank truck arrived, unloading packages and setting up five stations for distribution.
Doors opened at 10 a.m. but cars were already lined up outside the Baitus Samee Mosque in northwest Houston three hours before the event to receive food with the line stretching a whole mile.
Over 500 cars came through the Baitus Samee Mosque in a span of about three hours at a food pantry organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association, June 27, where roughly 10,000 pounds of food were distributed as part of their goal to end the injustice of food insecurity.
