Question

Some mosques express their readiness to receive the equivalent cost of Zakaat-ul Fitr from people in order to distribute it to the needy on their behalf in the form of commodities such as rice, flour, etc. Is this practice alright?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Since that it is intended that they would be purchasing and distributing those commodities to those who are in need of [the commodities] on their behalf, then it is alright and they will be getting the due reward, in shaa' Allaah.
