4.  IFANCA and HalalHealthy.Com Bring Halal to Campuses Across USA

October 14,2010 – Late-night munchies are part and parcel of the college experience! Now, with a single click, HalalHealthy.com will be bringing shelf-stable halal meals and snacks to dorms across the USA. Med Diet, the parent company of HalalHealthy.com, is also working with college food service directors to make halal common on campuses.
IFANCA (Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America) and Med-Diet surveyed 800 plus Muslim students from over 80 colleges to learn their food wishes. For Med-Diet, it was an exercise that that has culminated into the creation of HalalHealthy.com, an online halal store. “Students on campus don’t always have access to halal meals or halal stores,” says Don Tymchuck, President of Med-Diet Inc., of his company’s foray into the American halal market.  HalalHealthy.com offers halal-certified foods & snacks such as beef jerky, granola bars, ready-to-eat meals, high protein instant beverages, ethnic ready-to-use curries and sauces, all delivered to your dorm. No refrigeration is required.
IFANCA, one of the world’s leading halal certification organizations, certifies a majority of HalalHealthy.com products, many of which are sourced from around the world. Besides Med-Diet, IFANCA’s 2200 clients include Abbott Labs, Nestle, Kraft and Ben & Jerry’s.
"And if we don't have something you're looking for, do tell us," says Mr. Tymchuck. "That's the reason we began Halal Healthy in the first place."
"We are also looking to potentially support MSA activities, in order to create awareness about  www.HalalHealthy.com,” adds Naazish YarKhan, Director, Public Relations at Med Diet. “One idea is to create on-campus “halal ambassadors” so that we could have a liaison to keep us posted of MSA events as well as provide insights as to what halal products students would like to have. We can be reached via Twitter/ Facebook: HalalHealthy and  [log in to unmask]."
“HalalHealthy.com wants to make sure keeping halal is only a click away. Students can order single items or even nourishing Variety Packs delivered to their door,” said YarKhan. The Variety Packs are available in three cuisines: South Asian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean/African.  HalalHealthy.com is currently running their Fall Promotion, with a 10% discount off all purchases from now until Oct. 31st 2010.
Med-Diet caters to both consumers and the foodservice sector. It recently surveyed over 100 college foodservice directors and met with several to discuss the challenges and ways to bring halal to their campuses. Students, especially those living in dorms, have to pay for meal plans irrespective of whether they can actually consume the offered foods.  “Nearly half of the colleges surveyed had 100 or more Muslim students; however, only 6% had halal meal plans. Most of these schools already offer vegetarian, organic and gluten-free meal plans. On the positive side, they really want to meet the dietary needs of all their students, and generally welcome their input.”
“In our discussion with foodservice directors, they pointed out that there are 3 main potential outlets for halal foods: On-campus convenience stores, on-campus food courts and the residential dining halls,” said Mr. Tymchuck. “So they would start with selling some halal items in the convenience store to judge how serious the Muslim students are about having halal. If the sales are high, they would consider adding a halal kiosk or preparation area to the food court. “
If the students regularly patronize the food court, universities might consider adding halal to one residential cafeteria, probably the one where the freshmen eat, since all students would have to stay in the dormitories their first year.  Med-Diet can act as a liaison between MSA’s and college foodservice to make halal items available on campus.To contact Med Diet, email Naazish YarKhan: [log in to unmask], Twitter/ Facebook: HalalHealthy

11. Dua Request
Mohammed Amin Meenawala
I am not a man of many words so I will get right to it. As many of my family and friends know I have struggled with health issues the last 5 years. The root of my health issues is diabetes. Over the last 2 years I have been close to a cripple because of having to go to dialysis. The wonderful people at GTF are helping me get a kidney transplant. I have the cost of the actual transplant covered. However, there is a lot of medicine that must be taken after surgery to make sure my body recovers, and does not reject the transplant. The cost of these medicines is $20,000. Due to the toll dialysis takes on my body I have not been gainfully employed for the last 2 years. However I am thankful for the GTF for every dollar I raise prior to December 31, 2010, the GTF will match the amount. This means I only have to raise $10,000, prior to the end of the year. Over the last 2 years my family has helped me a lot both financially and emotionally, they have even helped contribute to my GTF fund. I am afraid I still need more help prior to the end of the year. I ask that those who can afford to donate generously and those who it maybe a little tough to donate even a little bit. As everyone knows every little bit helps, whatever you can give may Allah bless you. There are 2 ways to donate, you can click on the contribute button on the right and donate via credit card, if you are not comfortable donating online, you can mail a check to GTF
