This Ramadan, join the Give 30 movement and help feed your hungry neighbours!
April 2 – May 2
Ramadan is a time for empathy, compassion, and giving. Let’s come together in the spirit of Ramadan to help feed hungry children, seniors, families, and neighbours across Mississauga.
The first $30,000 donated will DOUBLE to feed twice as many neighbours! That means for every $1 you donate, your donation will be doubled to give healthy food for 4 meals to a hungry neighbour thanks to an anonymous donor.
Because of you, we are able to provide healthy food for almost 500,000 meals every month. That’s a 25% increase compared to the amount of food distributed pre-pandemic! With your support, we can continue to be a lifeline for hungry neighbours this Ramadan and beyond.
Here’s how you can support Give 30 this year:
- Make a financial donation! $50 provides food for 100 meals x 2 with the match to equal 200 meals!
- Host a food drive to collect the most needed and urgently needed items for emergency hampers.
- Set up a Ramadan fundraiser or consider hosting a virtual iftar to raise funds.
- Challenge yourself to give up something for 30 days (eg coffee, sugar, etc.) to show your solidarity.
- Send and tag us on photos and videos of your family participating in our Give 30 campaign and you could be included in our social media posts!
- Spread the word! Your advocacy can inspire others to join the fight against hunger. Be sure to tag us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn or TikTok.
Food donations can be brought directly to The Mississauga Food Bank at 3121 Universal Drive

What is Give 30?
Join the Give 30 movement!
Give 30 encourages everyone, regardless of faith, to show empathy for those who face food insecurity by donating to local food banks. If you’re fasting during the month of Ramadan, consider donating the money saved by abstaining from food or drink during daylight hours to feed your neighbours in need.
Give 30 also encourages those who do not partake in Ramadan to donate as well. Instead of fasting, it could be money saved by eating lunch or making coffee at home rather than dining out.
Spring brings about different celebrations for our community, but the one thing that unites us all is food. However you celebrate this spring, please think of your neighbours in need.
