American Muslims for Hunger Relief

The AMFHR (American Muslims for Hunger Relief) is grassroots organization to serve the hungry and homeless with compassion, dignity,and respect without any discrimination of color, race, gender or religion.


Eid ul-Adha requires the sacrifice of an animal of which 1/3 is eaten by immediate family and relatives, 1/3 given to friends, and 1/3 is donated to the poor. This act symbolizes our willingness to give up some of our own bounties, in order to strengthen ties of friendship and help those who are in need. In the spirit of such a blessed day, AMFHR is hosting it's Qurbani Collection program.

Since the start of this program AMFHR has collected over 3000 pounds and has distributed your donations to needy families across the NY and  NJ area. This year, as part of our Feed the Hungry Spread the Peace campaign, AMFHR will be collecting Qurbani Meat at the following locations:

AMFHR request you to pack the meat before delivering it to the locations listed before noon on Friday, October 18, 2013.

Once you drop your donation to one of the designated Drop-off locations,  please NOTIFY us by sending a text to our coordinators or an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

AMFHR Annual Report 2012

Assalamu Alaykum,

As another year comes to an end, AMFHR would like to say THANK YOU for supporting our organization. Alhamdulilah, AMFHR has been able to accomplish many of the goals throughout this past year, including soup kitchen events in various churches and mosques, canned food drives, and our Qurbani meat collection program. Along with those projects, AMFHR has successfully opened a new chapter in Philadelphia! Below is a summary of the events we were able to accomplish in the year 2012.

AMFHR Soup Kitchen Events 2012
This year AMFHR has expanded its feeding program across New Jersey into New York and Pennsylvania. Nonetheless, we are still concentrated in the New Jersey area, and have been focusing our efforts on the most needed areas. Below is a chart that illustrates the amount of soup kitchen events at various locations across New Jersey and the tri-state area. Inter-Faith Relations

AMFHR works closely with the Rahway Presbyterian Church throughout the year to provide hot meals for the homeless in the area. AMFHR has also been donating baked goods and canned food to Lakewood’s Tent City run by Reverend Steve.

Ramadan 2012

Ramadan is a blessed time of the year, and each year we strive to further help Muslim families in need. This year, AMFHR introduced our Ramadan Food Baskets which were made up of various food items that would allow a family in need to observe Ramadan with a comfortable Iftaar Dinner throughout this holy month. Food items were collected in various Islamic schools and masjids. In total, AMFHR volunteers were able to deliver these Food Baskets to 200 families.

Qurbani Meat Collection

Along with our Ramadan Food Baskets, AMFHR also collected Qurbani Meat to give to Muslim families in need. This has become an annual event, and the response we received from our supporters was truly amazing. This was done in conjunction with many Halal Meat Stores, which served as deposit sites for the Meat Collection. AMFHR was able to collect an astounding 3000 lbs of meat this year, and with the help of our volunteers, we were able to distribute them to families all across New Jersey, as well as New York.

AMFHR held soup kitchen at First Presbyterian church in Rahway for 150 people. They received chicken, rice, vegetables, garnola bars, and bananas. The Soup kitchen management & volunteers were grateful to AMFHR for delivering the food for their needy community.
Rosanne, the program director of Food for Friends, made an announcement to the guests & thanked AMFHR and the Muslim community for their diligence and consistent support to Food for Friends Soup kitchen.

Afterwards the AMFHR team delivered the food to the residents of Lakewood Tent City. Rev Steve received the food, clothes, and blankets in recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday.


Rev Steve mentioned that on this holiday their food donations are substantially lower and he was grateful to AMFHR & the Muslim community for the meals served in the course of a year as well as the canned food items & Bakery goods that AMFHR donated weekly throughout the year.

This Thanksgiving holiday was marked by moments for the AMFHR team. The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy has left foodbank's supplies depleted and many throughout the East Coast are left homeless. In these oppressing times it is important to remember not only what you have but that the possibility of tomorrow is always bright when there is faith in your hearts. The AMFHR team understands that by working collectively we can make a better tomorrow.

A special thanks to the ICOB Academy for sponsoring the food for this event. Also a huge thanks to our dedicated volunteers who made all this possible by working relentlessly.

As Br. Ghani Khan, Chairman of AMFHR, has said, the holy month of Ramadan bring to our attention food and hunger, offering us an opportunity to accelerate our efforts to feed less fortunate.

Ramadhan Kareem The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever draws near to Allah during it (Ramadan) with a single characteristic from the characteristics of (voluntary) goodness, he is like whoever performs an obligatory act in other times. And whoever performs an obligatory act during it, he is like whoever performed seventy obligatory acts in other times.” (Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, no. 1887)

Good Deeds during the Month of Ramadan are multiplied 70 times. And the AMFHR team is offering the perfect opportunity.
