The Philadelphia Inquirer – Ozzy Khalil arrived at the Muslim American Society in North Philadelphia at 6 a.m. Sunday to start making breakfast.
Khalil, 40, cooked scrambled eggs, French toast, turkey bacon and grits for almost 1,000 Philadephia police officers before they began their workday at the Puerto Rican Day Parade hosted by the 25th District – “so they could get something to eat before they go out on the streets,” Khalil said.
He and about 20 other volunteers with the mosque organized the event to express their gratitude for Philadelphia police officers.
“We want to let officers know that we do appreciate what they do, and that’s why we’re doing this today,” Khalil said.
