On November 25, 2004 The Washington Times reported, "Muslims passed out new winter coats and served hot meals to low-income families in the Herndon area last night to celebrate Thanksgiving. At least 100 members of the town's Hispanic community crowded Zuhair's Cafe on Grant Street, where they received a nontraditional Thanksgiving meal of beef kebabs and rice. 'It is not the traditional Thanksgiving meal, but hey, what is America without a little diversity?' said Mukit Hossain, who heads the Herndon-based Foundation for Appropriate and Immediate Temporary Help (FAITH), which organized the dinner."
