Last Friday, a Muslim organic farmer from New York made an amazing gift to kosher soup kitchen In Brooklyn. For ten years, Masbia's kosher soup kitchen in Brooklyn has been struggling to feed the hungry ones in New-York streets.
Unfortunately, the crisis has led to a shortage of donations to this small buisness. Lately, it had faced difficulties carrying on its humanitarian duty.
Zaid Kurdieh, who with his wife, Haifa, owns and farms at Norwich Meadows Farm, on Friday delivered 800 pounds of high-end organic carrots to Masbia, a network of kosher soup kitchens that provides meals to hundreds of hungry New Yorkers each week in Brooklyn and Queens. He also pledged to give more in the future.
Masbia Executive Director Alexander Rapaport said that the soup kitchen needs some 30,000 pounds of food a week to satisfy demand, and that last week it had only 15,000 pounds to distribute.
The Kurdiehs are devout Muslims who practice faith-based farming.
