Social services groups in one of the largest U.S. Muslim communities now have started offering home-delivered meals made according to Islamic law.

The Halal Meals on Wheels program _ the first in the country to work with a national halal food distributor _ comes after years of efforts by nonprofit agencies serving Detroit-area senior citizens and Muslim- and Arab-Americans.

Like other Meals on Wheels programs, it's designed for people who are at least 60 years old, confined to their homes and unable to make their own meals. But the halal meals also are deemed permissible or lawful for Muslims because they are prepared according to Islamic teachings.

The program started last month and has about 20 recipients. Organizers say it will grow as word spreads.
