This Ramadan, CivicMuslims is excited to present the Third Annual #GIVTAR: a special iftaar at the beautiful Centre for Social Innovation in the Annex to give back to our local food banks in support of the Give 30 campaign. We will break fast together over delicious food and hear from inspirational speakers about the power of fighting hunger in our communities.
Give 30 is a national grassroots campaign that asks people of all faiths and backgrounds to donate to their local food banks during the month of Ramadan. Give30 is an organization that supports 14 of the largest food banks in Canada and the United States and to date has raised over $600,000. Last year, CivicMuslims + #GIVTAR raised over $5,000 for food banks across Canada. With your #GIVTAR ticket you can select one of three GTA food banks to support: Daily Bread Food Bank, North York Harvest, or Mississauga Food Bank. Net proceeds from all tickets will go directly to the food banks. There will be no fundraising at #GIVTAR. Just inspiration.
This year again, we will have Somethin’ 2 Talk About catering the evening! The food will be delicious, and we cannot wait – Ahdela and her family stun us every year with the menu.
