General Volunteering

Afghan Food Distribution Program

As you may know, we have Afghan families that have moved and are moving into our communities. We can only imagine the uncertainty that each family must be feeling and we know that culturally there is a lot to acclimate to in a very small amount of time. We would like to take the worry of food off of their plates during their initial settlement period. 

Each Halal market food pack will consist of: 

  • 10lbs of Halal rice
  • 6lbs of Halal meat
  • 5 packages of nan bread
  • There is no cost to the volunteer however, this type of pack can cost around $60/per family. If you have a desire to give financially to support these efforts, please click HERE


We are looking for volunteers like yourself to help operationize this need for us. We would like to ask you for your patience with us as well as this volunteer need will have some fluidity to it before we can iron all the kinks out.


***If you are a food pick-up and delivery driver, please note: When you arrive to the Halal market, please be on the lookout for an individual with a red "The Indepedence Fund" polo on. They will assist you with the packing of your car for delivery. 


Additional Details:

PICK UP ADDRESS: Halal International, 3145 N. Sharon Amity Rd.
