(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, 9/19/2017) — The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) today released a short documentary titled “With Love and CAIR.” This film showcases the partnership between CAIR-OK, the Oklahoma Muslim community, and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma in the groups’ combined efforts to “fight hunger and feed hope in our state.”
Every year, during the Holy month of Ramadan, hundreds of Muslims attend CAIR-OK’s Annual Day of Service at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to package food for their fellow Oklahomans in need and learn more about the work of the food bank.
This past Ramadan Day of Service was held on June 17 and saw almost 200 Muslims volunteer to package more than 21,000 meals for their fellow Oklahomans.
