As DC Homelessness Persists, Restaurateur Raises Advocacy


Mr. Kazi Mannan, an immigrant from Pakistan, gave away over 16,000 meals to the homeless and hungry last year. His restaurant, Sakina Grill, is located just a few blocks from the White House and looks like any other high-end Pakistani-Indian eatery. But Mannan he gives away meals to anyone who needs them, no questions asked.

This article details Mannan’s current work and future plans — describing the impact of his faith and family on his current work, how Mannan has helped create a community for the homeless, and the Georgetown University Center for Social Justice programs and initiatives that bring students closer to the D.C. housing crisis and prepare them to advocate for change.
