Hot Meals Division

Free Hot Meals!

The MISF, Inc. solicits the help of local Muslim and non-Muslim volunteers to prepare and deliver hot meals to various individuals and groups including local homeless shelters and soup kitchens across South Florida.  We are joyfully committed to connecting those who have with those who do not have.  This is an excellent means of getting community residents and families to come together for a good cause while following a very powerful verse from the Noble Qur’an in Chapter 76 Verse 8:

وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا

And the believers give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive.

Part of this program includes our partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida Adopt a Meal Event. We prepare wholesome and healthy meals with love.

If you would like to participate in this cause or if you know of an organization to which we can prepare and serve a free hot meal
