Spread the Ramadan Warmth & Feed Your Neighbours!

Ibn 'Abbas informed Ibn az-Zubayr, “I heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, 'He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbour goes hungry.” 
- Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 112

As Ramadan approaches, Islamic Relief Canada is once again gearing up to help those in less fortunate situations across Canada. This year, our focus will be on distributing food boxes to feed people across the country for iftar.

Ramadan is a time of reflection, spiritual growth, and giving back to the community. Unfortunately, during this time, there are also many families that struggle to put food on their table. That's why Islamic Relief Canada is committed to ensuring that everyone can have a meal during this special month.

With one donation, you can spread the Ramadan warmth and help save a life. 

Annual Ramadan Food Box 

This Ramadan, volunteer as part of our annual Ramadan Food Box Distribution to provide food boxes to your neighbours and spread the blessings of the holy month. 

Our efforts will be focused this Ramadan in 13 cities across Canada – including Abbotsford, Calgary, Charlottetown, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Halifax, London, Kitchener, Cambridge, Guelph, Ottawa, and Surrey. 

Food Boxes

Our teams and volunteers will work with local partner organizations to procure local food items and package them into hampers. These food boxes will be filled with culturally inclusive and nutritious foods that are essential for suhoor and iftar meals. 

The food boxes will include:

Your Impact Last Ramadan

Throughout the year and especially during Ramadan, Islamic Relief Canada takes on a community-driven model to support diverse communities across Canada. 

Last year, we assembled food baskets with staple food items to ensure vulnerable people can enjoy healthy, balanced meals. Additionally, in previous Ramadans, we have provided warm meals to the unhoused, seniors and low-income families

With the help of 293 volunteers and partner organizations such as IISC, Nisa Homes, Al Rashid Mosque, OBRF, Sakeenah Canada, and Muslim Aid, we were able to distribute 1125 warm meals and 2157 food boxes last Ramadan.

Donate to continue spreading the warmth!

Your donation can make a real difference in the lives of those who are struggling this Ramadan. With just one donation, you can help us provide warm meals and food boxes to feed people across Canada. 

Let's come together to make this Ramadan a time of giving, generosity, and compassion.
