Give30 Waterloo Region is back this Ramadan to continue addressing food insecurity in our community. Give30 WR has raised over $30,000.00 in the past two years of its inception for The Food Bank of Waterloo Region!
For the third year in a row, Give 30 promises to bank on the giving spirit of Ramadan to inspire people of all faiths and backgrounds to help fight hunger.
The campaign, which includes Ottawa for the first time, is a national, grassroots initiative that has already raised $130,000 for food banks in several Canadian cities. This year, nine food banks in five cities have joined the campaign.
Toronto lawyer and social activist Ziyaad Mia is the founder of Give30.ca. He spoke with Muslim Link.
