Beginning April 9, Zaman will expand its COVID-19 emergency food support for families in need by offering weekly distributions at the Hope for Humanity Center in Inkster (26091 Trowbridge St.). Drive-thru, no-contact service will begin at 12:00 and will continue until 2:00, while supplies last. Food will be available on a first come, first served basis. Team members and volunteers will be taking all necessary precautions to distribute food safely.
Alternating weeks will be sponsored by Gleaners Community Food Bank's School Food Mobile Program.
This initiative is the latest addition to Zaman's emergency response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Through partnerships with United Way for Southeastern Michigan, Gleaners Community Food Bank, Focus:HOPE, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Zaman has helped to provide on-site food distribution to those in need since mid-March, serving low-income families, seniors, and students who rely on free and reduced meals during normal school operations.
To date, Zaman has distributed more than 2,000 emergency food kits that feed a family of four for one to two weeks.
