Bridgewater-based Muslims Against Hunger has organized Muslims Serve Day 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 20 at Morristown Interfaith Community Soup Kitchen, 36 South St., Morristown.

The event is timed to Eid-ul-Adha, a festival that celebrates the Muslim belief of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ismael, for Allah.

"It is an Islamic tradition to feed the poor and needy on any kind of memorable occasion in our life," said Zamir Hassan, founding coordinator of Muslims Against Hunger.
