Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a favorite snack amongst most children, but what happens when snack time turns into something life-threatening? 1 in 13 children and 1 in 10 adults have had life-threatening reactions to food. How do we keep our kids and ourselves safe from foods that trigger allergies? Thanks to our partners EMU CHDIS we will explore, educate and empower our community to create and maintain a healthy and safe food environment.

I was just settling into class when the announcement was made and the T.V. revealed a horrifying scene. Plumes of thick black smoke against a clear blue sky, while our eyes fixated on the screen, As If in slow motion, the second plane hit the tower and a collective gasp of disbelief filled the air. Our teacher gave us the option to leave the class or contact family if we needed to, for those of us staying we would resume our work. I thought that was mean, but looking back I understand she knew as much as we did and nothing more. As the country scrambled to find the why and the who behind this. I struggled with what it means to be a Muslim-American. But I've come to realize We are Americans, African-American, Jewish-American, Christian- American, and as Americans do best, we gathered our strength and came together as a nation to comfort and grieve with one another. As we remember the lives lost, and honor our brave first responders let's also remember the words of Rev. Nathan Baxter "As we act, let us not become the evil who we deplore." -Khurshida Hossain

Couzens Lansky recently helped support the Detroit Friendship House with their mission of offering help with basic human needs to the residents of Hamtramck. The annual “Fowling for Food” fundraiser at Hamtramck’s own Fowling Warehouse held on May 3, 2019, was an opportunity to give back to the surrounding neighborhood while engaging in a bit of spirited competition.
