Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge Final Results!

Ma sha’ Allah, by His grace Al Huda was able to collect 4.5 thousand food items during this 3rd #DhulHijjahFC, a whopping increase of 62% from last year! Jazakum Allahu khayran, everyone, for caring so much and helping our hungry neighbours.

Congratulations to the Outreach Venues who seriously led this event. Being first-time participants did not deter them from winning the Challenge, with Etobicoke in 3rd place, Milton in 2nd place, and Scarborough ranking 1st across the organization, ma sha’ Allah!

A special thank you to the Challenge Leads, who led their classes throughout the DHFC, and worked with the Serving Humanity team to log in their results.

Together as a team of Al Huda staff and onsite and online students, we have set the bar high for ourselves, so let us use this as an opportunity to make a habit of helping the vulnerable, and increasing our ranks in the sight of Al-Karim, the Generous.

DHFC 2015 Final Results

Our annual Dhul Hijjah Food Challenge is back!

August – Month of Giving!

 There are people in the community who do not have enough food to eat a proper morning meal or breakfast. In Mississauga alone, 17% of the population lives in poverty (Mississauga Food Bank).

August – Month of Giving! was started for the reason of giving food to others in need and contributing towards the development of the community. The simple process involves packing staple food items for shelters and food programmes across the Greater Toronto Area. Our first collection was a success with 702 lbs of food delivered to Ernestine Women’s Shelter.The types of items needed to create the staple food packages are:
Rice
Flour
Lentils
Sugar
Oil
Baby Food

Contribute in any capacity you are able.

Drop off food items in the Food Bank bins at:

5671 McAdam Rd., Mississauga, ON. L4Z 1N9.
