Miller’s provides food for York Mosque



Miller’s Fish and Chips in Haxby, North Yorkshire, broke the Ramadan fast with the local Muslim community last night by hand delivering portions of their halal and gluten free fried fish to the York Mosque and Islamic Centre.


Nick Miller, who co-owns the shop with his dad David, was keen to make the gesture after he was welcomed to the mosque recently to attend an art competition.

Wanting the food delivery to be a celebration of the unity within the York community, Nick comments: “It was really important for us to visit the mosque and we are delighted that we could help provide some of our halal fish for such a special evening. Me and the rest of the family are really happy that we’ve been able to share our food as part of Ramadan and it really shows the strong social bonds within York’s community.

“It’s the first time that our fish and chips has been served as part of such an incredible feast and it was a great addition.”

Mebs Surve, a prominent member of York Mosque’s community, added: “It means a tremendous amount to the Muslim community of York Mosque that someone is providing food as an act of kindness and friendship.

“With all the disunity and divisions caused by the atrocities during the last few months, it’s opportunities such as these that we must embrace and treasure. We welcome anyone and everyone to the Mosque, which is here for the community as a whole.”
