COVID-19 – Emergency Food Hampers & Senior Support


Muslim food bank distributes food hampers to nearly 3,000 people on a monthly basis, providing an estimated 24,000 meals a year to the most at-risk in our society, from homeless individuals to newly arrived refugees from war-torn regions.

With COVID-19 massively displacing jobs and disproportionately affecting our most at-risk, seniors and the poor, we’re facing an increase in demand for access to our foodbank. Offering essential front-line services, we are committed to continue efforts with all necessary safety precautions. We need your support today to enable us to mobilize quickly and address the fast-changing needs of our community through a 4-month COVID-19 plan that includes:

Essential Food Assistance

Prepackaging of essential food hampers to feed at-risk individuals including verified refugees, vulnerable elderly and the impoverished. This includes a dedicated team delivering essential food assistance to elders in the community, with a no-contact option.

Emergency Remote Caseworkers for Refugees

Thousands of resettled refugees, rely on our services for support and to help them navigate the pandemic.

Please donate to our COVID-19 Campaign and help your community through this very hard time;
