Fast Against Hunger Campaign – Project Ramadan

Fast Against Hunger Campaign

Campaign has ended.


The Fast Against Hunger campaign is an initiative created by Project Ramadan in response to the hunger crisis facing Canadians.

Did you know?
• Over 4 million people face food insecurity across Canada
• 1/3 children in Canada are at risk for going to school hungry

This year we would like to invite our non-muslim friends to join us and fast alongside us on April 23rd to show our support for those individuals who face food insecurities on a regular basis.

We believe that our community is always stronger together, and that access to food is a basic human right, not a privilege.

Your donation goes towards Project Ramadan’s food basket program to help support families in our local community. For every $60 donated you help feed a family for up to 1 month.

You have the ability to feed over 6,000 people this Ramadan.

In our 2021 campaign alone, we built and distributed over 5,000 baskets to 5,000 families, with a total of 36,000 food baskets being distributed across Ontario since 2009. Help us achieve our goal this 2022 to surpass over 6,000 baskets to the vulnerable.
