Food Banks Canada and Halal Monitoring Authority Partner to Bring Halal Food to Those In NeedWritten by Staff Writer
The Halal Monitoring Authority (HMA Canada) has partnered with Food Banks Canada to encourage consumers to donate halal foods to local food banks.
The Halal Monitoring Authority (HMA) is a non profit organization established to provide assurance of genuine halal products through deployment of inspectors to inspect, regulate, monitor, supervise and label halal consumables from their sources to the consumer. HMA Canada was established by Jami’yyatul Ulama Canada, Canadian Council of Muslim Theologians (CCMT).
Food Banks Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity. We support a network of Provincial Associations, Affiliate food banks, and food agencies that work at the community level to relieve hunger.
According to HMA Canada:
"We are so excited to announce that HMA and Food Banks Canada are partnering in spirit of Rabi ul Awwal, the birth month of our Prophet (peace be upon him)!
From November 10 to December 10, we would like to encourage you all to donate HMA Certified fresh, frozen, and non-perishable food items to your local Food Bank to help provide genuine halal products for our brothers & sisters in humanity.
