Unfortunately the dependency of people residing within Luton upon food banks have spiked over the past few years and many people would go hungry if food banks were not available to them. Having been instrumental in launching Luton’s first foodbank, we continue to support the Luton Foodbank by being a referral and donation drop off point, making our central location very useful.
Every year the Discover Islam Luton team partake/organise various campaigns to support Luton Foodbank, one of which is the Annual Ramadan food drive. Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic Calendar & sees Muslims across the globe fasting from dawn to sunset, whilst also increasing their efforts in good deeds such as giving in charity. This Ramadan we managed to raise a total of 8,191 food items for the Luton Foodbank thanks to the support of generous locals & businesses. We officially presented our collection to the Luton Foodbank Team on Thursday 28th June 2018, concluding our campaign with the attendance of local business supporters.
Thank you to those who supported the Ramadan Food Drive Campaign.
