Serving Humanity

Muslim Soup Kitchen Projects (MSKP) has been feeding thousands of local families and individuals in need, by holding monthly Soup kitchens and drives at various locations throughout the Capital Region in NY and nationally throughout the USA on National Muslim Soup Kitchen Day. We hope to create unity among families as they work together and within our communities as we unity together to help those in need.

Help make National Soup Kitchen Day the day that no one goes to bed hungry

Countless organizations from all around the United States, individuals and groups have come together to prepare and serve thousands of meals to the people in their own communities since the launch of our first National Muslim Soup Kitchen Day in 2016. What started as a small local effort by students in 2003 in Albany, NY, has now reached thousands of families across the country. Help us reach every community and bring benfit to as many people as possible.

Feeding thousands

With the above in mind, the Muslim Soup Kitchen Project (MSKP) embarked on the NATIONAL Muslim Soup Kitchen Project (NMSKP) in 2016. NMSKP is a project that seeks to encourage as many groups as possible, including other faith communities, both in the Capital District - as well as in other parts of the country - to come together once a year to plan and host a soup kitchen in their own towns or cities to help those in need.

National Muslim Soup Kitchen Day Planning

This year National Muslim Soup Kitchen Day will be held on Saturday, May 30th, 2020: We aim to serve as many people nationwide as possible, and here is how you can help:

1. Identify the help: Reach out to the people you know (your own family members, members of a youth club, a local church, synagogue or another faith community, a local organization, or people from the community at large).

2. Identify who to serve: Decide who you will be serving a meal to. If you need help with identifying a group, call your local shelters, churches or other congregations - they love this!

3. Decide what to serve: Discuss this with your group and choose something YOU would like to serve. Also (if you need to) reach out to your community! Ask that auntie that makes your favorite biryani, show everyone that you can make a mean lasagna, or have a sandwich competition with your local student group. Get creative!

4. Decide where to serve: You may find it best to deliver from your local community center to places in need, or you may find that a local shelter will allow you to cook and serve right from their own kitchen.

5. Communicate with us before the day: Let us know that you are on board for the National Muslim Soup Kitchen Day! Register with us using the following link:

6. Advertise: Do your best to reach out to local media outlets so that they can help to publicize your event beforehand and/or report on it on the day itself.

7. Capture the moment: Take pictures and/or videos and share them with us on our facebook event page: Also, please remember to share links of any media coverage you get!
