NABIC in collaboration with Bay Area Bangladeshi Associaton (BABA) started a project named Bangladeshi American Community for Charity (BACC). The focus of this project is to provide food to the poorest in the Bay Area, California. Most of the recipients will be local families on government subsidies whose food stamp benefits do not suffice for an entire month. NABIC will provide $5,000 for this project. We are also partnering with Rahima Foundation for the distribution.
NABIC is providing funds to Midtown Mosque Mobile Food Pantry to help distribute packaged food every month to financially disadvantaged community members in Memphis. The program is supported by the work of 15 volunteers. At its current capacity, the program is able to provide food for 80 individuals. In 2017 NABIC provided $2K to support this project.
NABIC has been financially supporting ‘Ansaar of Worcester’ food pantry since its inception in 2017. This pantry provides essential food items to financially disadvantaged community members of Worcester including refugees and immigrants who have settled there. And, also extend the efforts to helping local residents who are otherwise undeserved. Ansaar does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, lifestyle, or any other basis, and extends services to anyone struggling with basic necessities.
