Give 30 Fundraiser for Canadian Food Banks
Last weekend, CivicMuslims hosted its Second Annual Givtar event at the Regent Park Centre for Social Innovation - an iftar benefit in support of the Give 30 campaign.
Every Ramadan, Give 30 raises funds for food banks across Canada. This year is an especially important year for Give 30 as they are nearing their $500,0000 mark of funds raised since the organization’s inception in 2012.
The event was catered by Something To Talk About - a small cafe that's located at the corner of Bay and Gerrard. By day, the cafe serves up sandwiches, shawarmas, and lunch fare - and it also doubles up as a catering company. For Givtar, they catered a delicious chickpea curry with rice, herb-seasoned chicken, and salads.
The proceeds of the night went to the Daily Bread Food Bank, North York Harvest Food Bank, and the Mississauga Food Bank. For more information on the Give 30 campaign, check out their website. And kudos to CivicMuslims for putting on such a great event.
