Open Halal meat section in the local stores at Oxford, Ohio

Each year, Muslim students from different countries, come to Oxford, Ohio, to attend Miami University. There are also several Muslim faculty members and graduate students who are staying in Oxford with their families and children for several years. The number of Muslims in the city is increasing every year.

Muslims are required to consume chicken and beef which are slaughtered according to the instructions mentioned in Islam, known as Halal meat. However, there is no local store in Oxford where Halal meat can be purchased. For Halal meat, we need to drive from Oxford to Cincinnati (around 40 miles one way) almost every week. This long drive is very tiresome and takes about two hours only to go to Cincinnati and return back. Some of the students and families do not have car and having difficulty in buying Halal meat. 

We, therefore, request the local stores of Oxford (such as Moon Co-Op, Kroger, Walmart etc) to open a Halal meat section in their stores as soon as possible due the increasing demand of the Muslims in the city. Since the Halal chicken and meat has to be certified, we strongly recommend the local stores to sell chicken products from Crescent Foods (http://crescenthalal.com/) and beef products from Midamar (www.midamar.com).
