How it works

  • Buy supplies

    We shop around for the best price on food items to keep baskets low in cost, but high in value. With help from our founding partner, the Muslim Welfare Centre, Project Ramadan buys in bulk - before fundraising officially kicks off - so baskets are ready posthaste! Have a connection that could help source supplies? Contact us.

  • Raise money

    Calling all donors - we need you! Your gift of $50 means those in need have direct access to items like rice, flour, canned goods and so much more. More than 10,000 Torontonians aren't sure where there next meal is coming from - let's change that together. Want to make a difference? Donate today.

  • Build baskets!

    Here's the fun part - each summer, hundreds of volunteers come together to make baskets, make friends, and above all, make a difference. With every minute of Project Ramadan time volunteered, we can focus resources on what we do best: building baskets, and building bridges. Join us - learn more about volunteering!

Others in need might look at a basket and think, "My kids will be so happy to have tuna fish!" It's heartbreaking to think that there are s...

Many of us awaited the arrival of this month with a mixture of anticipation and nerves as we prepared to keep some of the longest fasts of our lifetime. We have been blessed with full tables at suhoor and iftaar, the thought of which often make those last moments of the fast easier to bear. Many in our community, sometimes even our own neighbours, do not enjoy these same blessings.&n...

  • Feeding Families

    Salaam, Generousity in charity is a very strong focus during the month of Ramadan, as it contributes to spiritual refinement and the attainment of renewed clarity in the mind and heart. So many Muslims are working towards these higher goals during this time, irrespective of their socio-economic status, gender, culture, background. For some Muslim families it is harder to get access to meals more than others, and during such a time of spiritual endeavour, they could really benefit from support. P...
