“He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while the neighbour to his side goes hungry.” (Al-Albani)
This Ramadan, take part in our Foodbank Calendar challenge, and provide food to struggling families who rely on foodbanks in Luton.
Over the last five years, reliance on food banks in the UK has rocketed by 73%. Over 1.5 million emergency food parcels – that’s the most on record, ever – were distributed to people going hungry last year.
Every Ramadan, we ask for your help to feed fasting people around the world. But, as Muslims, we also know the momentous responsibility upon us to make sure that our neighbours are not going hungry while we break our fasts at the end of the day.
Fulfil your charitable duty this Ramadan and help us to stock up Luton Foodbank, as no one should go hungry.
How it works
Download your Ramadan Foodbank Calendar. Drop us an email at email@example.com to let us know you’re taking part in the challenge, access FAQ sheet and grab yourself a large, sturdy bag.
For each day of Ramadan, your calendar lists a spiritual reminder and a much-needed foodbank item. Check your calendar each morning and then find time in your day to practise that reminder, or to add the food item to your collection bag.
Over the month you’ll collect tinned food, long-life milk, rice, juices and soup, and you’ll find lots of small ways to increase your reward and remembrance of Allah in this holy month.
Then, once Ramadan is over, drop off your collection bag at Luton Foodbank, which you can find at:
3, High Town Enterprise Centre, York Street, Luton, LU2 0HA during the following dates and time ONLY:
Monday 3rd June 9.00am- 4.00pm
Tuesday 4th June 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Wednesday 5th June 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Thursday 6th June 9.00am - 4.00pm
Friday 7th June 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Last Ramadan you provided 2,242 hot meals for homeless people in five drop-in centres in Manchester, and 10,000 meals, as well as clothes and information, in London, through our partner, Street Kitchen.
Help us to care for our neighbours, and support the most vulnerable families this Ramadan.
