Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatul'Allahi Wa Barakatuh (Greetings, may peace be upon you),
The RamadanMeals team is excited once again to team up with local area mosques, small businesses and caterers to prepare healthy meals and fresh food baskets for the Toronto community during the month of Ramadan beginning on April 12th.
Typically during the 30 days of Ramadan, local mosques would prepare and serve fresh halal meals for community members to break the fast. With the COVID19 pandemic and strict public health measures in place, all mosques will remain closed or at limited capacity during the lockdown.
The COVID19 pandemic has resulted in many economic, social and health impacts to our neighbours, families and friends. At a time of fasting, peace, prayer and reflection, our goal is to ensure that all of our community members have access to fresh food and healthy meals during the Holy month of Ramadan.
This Ramadan, we are coordinating with local Downtown area mosques in Toronto to prepare and distribute halal meals and fresh food baskets to those in need. We are currently delivering 350 meals per day, mostly to seniors, front line workers and families who are in need of this support.
We look forward to your continued support in making this initiative a success again this year.
