Celebrating the Race Against Hunger!

As we close out the Race Against Hunger 2020, we feel such gratitude for all who have participated, fundraised, posted photos, and spread the world about the Race. This year, due to COVID-19, the Race looked very different from the annual in-person event that we look forward to every year. Despite the challenges of transitioning to a virtual event, the community, perseverance, and commitment to ending hunger that so many of you have displayed gives us hope for the future!

Let’s meet some of the pantries that participated in the Race this year!


Na'ilah Johns: Community Leader, Hunger Fighter

For over 20 years, Na’ilah Johns has tirelessly lead the emergency food cupboard at Masjidullah in West Oak Lane, coordinating donations as well as deliveries across Philadelphia. We spoke with Na’ilah, the program’s founder, about the rewards and challenges of keeping a wide-reaching, inclusive program moving forward.

Coalition Against Hunger (CAH): Give us a bit of background on the food program at Masjidullah. How did it get started?
