Join us to tackle food insecurity across Canada & help empower communities at the Muslim Food Bank and Community Services 2023 Fundraising Dinner on March 18 at the Taj Park Convention Center in Surrey!
On March 18, 2023, Join us in our “Gearing up For Ramadan” Fundraising Dinner to help us tackle food insecurity across Canada. The event will be headlined by guest speaker, Imam Hamid Slimi. Join us for a night of reflection and spirituality as we head into the Holy month of Ramadan.
Food insecurity is the biggest challenge that our community is facing, making it even more important to all of us to come together and end hunger. We strongly believe that access to good quality food for all is possible, and essential for a thriving society and here is how we are nourishing our community through dedicated and unified actions.
With the Holy Month of Ramadan around the corner, please consider donating the Muslim Food Bank and help support your local brothers and sisters in need.
