PLAINFIELD, NJ — The Muslim Community Soup Kitchen served Thanksgiving dinners on Saturday to more than 80 people at Masjidullah Plainfield. MCSK serves meals at 1:00 p.m. every Saturday, and food items range from fresh fruits, chicken, fish and salads.

The group's goals include cooking and feeding the hungry, collecting and donating seasonal clothing, and collecting canned goods for those in need. Those served do not have to be Muslim.

This Saturday, Elnora Muhammad, Imam Earnest Shakir, Miriam Abdul-Aziz, Rita Furqan-Uqdah, Hasana Muhammad, Rashidah Ali, Faheemah El-Amin, Siddeeq El-Amin and Imam Khalil Abdul-Aziz were prepping for the giveaway that included homemade foods like seafood and potato salads, and dessert donations from Costco.
