For this year's Ramadan observance, local Muslims are not only fasting, but feeding the needy in Cincinnati.
Mosques in Clifton and Over-the-Rhine will feed people daily at sundown during this time.
A special event also will be held on Sept. 23 near the Al As-hab Mosque on Vine Street to give out 450 hot meals. It is being held by the Cincinnati chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.
Ramadan starts today and continues for 30 days, through Oct. 12.
