Halal meals for the hungry


From the San Jose Mercury comes this story:

This summer, a group of Silicon Valley-based Muslims will serve all-halal meals to the hungry from a roving food truck — an effort that's the first of its kind in the Bay Area, perhaps in the nation.
Although meals are halal, they are freely given to anyone regardless of faith:

The Muslim group doesn't ask for any credentials or references before handing out the food and doesn't know how many Muslims or non-Muslims it feeds.

"Frankly, we don't ask, and we don't care," Ashraf said.

A wonderful example of "outdo one another in showing honor". Hunger is hunger--it doesn't care what faith you are or if you believe at all.

I agree, Cynthia.

Nice to see. Not surprising, but nice.
