Brooklyn community center seeks donations ahead of Ramadan
When the pandemic started, a Brooklyn community center started a food pantry to help people facing food insecurity. Now the center is in need of donations as they work to feed community members during the Ramadan.
Salah Ajaj is one of hundreds of people who line up weekly to get food from the APNA Brooklyn Community Center's food pantry.
He says he has no income and the pantry is especially important to him and the Muslim community ahead of the holy month.
Ramadan is a religious holiday where Muslims fast during the day and eat once the sun sets.
APNA is a community center that offers services to help low-income community members in need.
CEO Erum Hanif says the pantry is expecting a rush of people starting next week as the need for food grows during the holy month.
