On Sunday, September 22, 2019, representatives from Muslim Americans for Compassion (MAC) participated in the 2019 Hunger Walk at Louisville’s Waterfont Park. The event is presented by Kroger and organized by Dare to Care and our community partners at Interfaith Paths to Peace. Each year during the Hunger Walk more than 2,000 people make a public commitment that everyone in our community will have access to the food they need to be healthy.
To generate interest in the event, Hunger Walk organizers hosted an interfaith kickoff event, where MAC board member Waqar Saleem joined several of our city’s other faith and community leaders in expressing the sacredness of caring tot those in need.
“In Isalm, feeding the hungry is one of the most noble thing a person can do,” said Saleem. “It is the right thing to do – to make sure nobody goes to bed hungry at night.”
Muslim Americans for Compassion is proud to support and participate in this very important event.
