Somali advocates rally for halal food shelf in Twin Cities
Fox Twin Cities
A Somali women's advocacy group is demanding a review of its request for county support of a halal food shelf in the Twin Cities. The Isuroon Project says there is a "desperate need" for a culturally-specific halal food shelf in the metro, but that Hennepin County has denied its requests for support.
"Isuroon has reached out for Hennepin County's support for the Ethnic Food Shelf, and has cooperated fully with the Hennepin County commissioner's office and provided the county with their required qualifications," the group said in a statement. "The commissioner's office has ignored Isuroon's requests for review and the community needs to respond to let the public know what has transpired."
