The Suhoor Food Truck Fest in Milwaukee brought families and friends together to celebrate Ramadan in the ample parking lot of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee.

Eat Halal Milwaukee created the first ever “Ramadan Addition” Suhoor Food Truck Fest held at 4707 South 13th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53221. The nighttime fest kicked off at 10:30 pm on Friday, April 7th and was open until 2 am for suhoor, the meal eaten at night during Ramadan before the sun comes up and fasting resumes. 

Main sponsor Islamic Society of Milwaukee, community sponsor Hayat Pharmacy, event organizer Bushra Zaibak and volunteers from the Salam School student council made the night a huge success.
