US: Project Downtown where Muslims feed the homeless

(ST. LOUIS) - A Muslim group called Project Downtown is giving back to the American community by feeding those who are less well off.

Volunteers spent Saturday preparing 100+ meals that are made from scratch to deliver them to people in need. Which they've been doing every single Saturday since 2013.

One of Project Downtown's organizers, Abbas Ali said,
"Every week is something different. Make the same food and people get bored. We don't want to be like other organizations. We spice it up for volunteers and for the people we serve in the community."
Project Downtown is supported entirely by donations. They said it takes $300 to $400 dollars a week to feed the people they feed. Since 2013, they've prepared and delivered 20,000 meals.
