Muslims in Coventry donate to food bank during Ramadan


Muslims in Coventry maintained a regular tradition during the month of fasting by donating a generous amount of food to the city’s food bank.The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association handed over food weighing over 200kg to Mitchell Holbrook, manager at the Coventry Food Bank warehouse in Binley .

Members of the AMA have previously made similar donations to the food bank on several occasions.The Food Bank relies on food donations to feed local people in crisis and is distributed through 16 partner churches throughout Coventry. The Food Bank provided food to more than 200 people a week.Mr Holbrook received the food items on July 11 and he also gave the volunteers a short visit of the warehouse and explained how the food bank operates.Mumtaz Malik, the local president of AMA Coventry, said: “Helping the poor and those in need is our duty according to the true teachings of Islam and as Ahmadiyya Muslims we would continue to support food bank.”
