How Project Ramadan Works


Your donations are used to buy the goods at wholesale, and we also negotiate with suppliers so that baskets retailing for $80+ only cost our donors $50. We can’t do what we do without the love and support of our awesome sponsors.


MWC’s Project Ramadan is 100% volunteer-run, which means your dollars go far in helping feed the need.


Normally, we host several builds across the GTA (and Ottawa), where hundreds of volunteers come together for a few hours of packing food baskets for our beneficiaries. This year, due to COVID-19 - we've had a slight change in plans, but worry less - we'll ensure that the food baskets are delivered to those in need.

How You Help The Cause.

Deliver Baskets. Deliver Hope. Make a Difference.

Each year, hundreds of volunteers come together to make baskets, make friends, and above all, make a difference. This year, we're doing things a little differently.

One-Month Supply of Food

Because of our generous sponsors and your donations, we generally manage to secure supplies for the baskets at a reasonable price, often lower than suggested retail prices. 

Our average basket includes: chickpeas, dates, flour, honey, beans, oil, lentils, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, salt, sugar, tea, tuna.

Do More Good.
