Taco Trucks at Every Mosque

Taco Trucks at Every Mosque

Orange County's Muslim and Latino communities broke bread—or rather, tortillas—last night at the second "Taco Trucks at Every Mosque" event this month held at the Islamic Society of Orange County in Garden Grove. The event celebrates the breaking of fast (iftar) during the month of Ramadan and is meant to educate and unite the public in a simple way about the purpose of fasting with a side of tacos. Organizer, Rida Hamid described the event as an act of unity during contentious times. "Latinos and Muslims are fighting hate in the most delicious way, one halal taco at a time," says Hamid, "Take that Trump. We are united by taco trucks!" All images by Denise De La Cruz.
