One of the Muslim Food Bank and Community Services newest programs, the Employment Readiness Program which was implemented in early July, has already held 2 workshops. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity and safe space for participants to discuss the fears and challenges they have come across in reference to securing employment. With community leaders and mentors present at workshops, it is a great opportunity for you to share your experiences and ask questions regarding employment in the Canadian job market, in a judgement-free environment. With our informative and interactive workshops, we hope clients feel inspired and motivated to seek employment. This program is not limited to MFBCS clients - all refugees are welcome to participate. You must be currently unemployed. To register for the next workshop, call +1 866-248-3868, ext.218. If you are interested in helping execute the program, get in touch with Zahida Jaffer at events@muslimfoodbank.com أحد أحدث برامج البنك الإسلامي للخدمات الغذائية والأجتماعية هو برنامج جاهزية التوظيف الذي تم تنفيذه في بداية شهر يوليو. المغزى من البرنامج هو توفير فرصة ومساحة آمنة للمشاركين لمناقشة المخاوف والتحديات التي يواجهونها في تأمين التوظيف. مع وجود قادة المجتمع المحلي والموجهين في الاجتماعات، فإن هذه فرصة عظيمة بالنسبة لك مشاركة خبراتك وطرح أسئلة حول التوظيف في سوق العمل الكندي، في بيئة خالية من أي حكم أو نقد. مع ورش العمل التثقيفية والتفاعلية ، نأمل أن يشعر العملاء بالإلهام والتحفيز للبحث عن عمل.ترقبوا ورشة العمل التالية ، التي ستجري في غضون بضعة أشهر! لا يقتصر هذا البرنامج على عملاء MFBCS - جميع اللاجئين مرحب بهم للمشاركة. يجب أن تكون عاطلًا عن العمل حاليًا. للتسجيل في ورشة العمل القادمة ، اتصل على: +1 866-248-3868, ext.218. إذا كنت مهتمًا بالمساعدة في تنفيذ البرنامج ، فتواصل مع زاهدة جعفر على: events@muslimfoodbank.com...

How we do it

Program Divisions

Where to go

Food Bank

Food Bank programs serves the needs of clients who have special dietary needs (halal, kosher, vegetarian, vegan, etc.). Our client base demographic is predominantly Muslim from all ethnicities. However we are non denominational and try to serve families from all faiths and cultural communities.

ASPIRE

The ASPIRE Community Case Work programs aim at promoting the development and independence of our clients. By pairing with a Case Worker, this program promotes the development and independence of clients by focusing on the core areas of education, employment, and community support.

Youth Support

The Youth Support programs provides support and help through English Classes, Summer Schools, Employment Support, MFB Soccer Training, Digital Storytelling, Prison Outreach, and HOPE  (Healing Opportunities through Prevention and Education) Program, and other services tailored for our youth.
