In honor of World Food Day, which was celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 16, youth from the Dawoodi Bohra Anjuman-e-Ezzi (Boston) community took the mission to feed those who are in need to heart and donated a large collection of supplies to the Billerica Community Pantry.
World Food Day is an initiative by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
This global event marks a day calling for worldwide awareness and collective action to combat the issue of hunger and ensure healthy diets for all.
The theme this year was “Our actions are our future.”
This special drive organized by Dawoodi Bohra followers was located at their mosque, 246 Rangeway Road, North Billerica.
