On this episode, we head over to the Al Rashid Mosque to learn about two programs that are helping the community.
The first is A Taste of Ramadan. This event will see Al Rashid provide food and entertainment to hundreds of Edmontonians. A Taste of Ramadan was started more than a decade ago as a way to counter Islamophobia by providing non-Muslims with a chance to learn more about the holy month of Ramadan.
The second program we will learn about is Al Rashid’s Door-to-Door Iftar program. In 2021, Edmonton Community Foundation provided a grant to Al Rashid Mosque to establish the Door-to-Door Iftar program. Since then, it has provided more than 20,000 meals to those who have been facing food security challenges during the pandemic.
This year, ECF is proud to be the title sponsor of A Taste of Ramadan which will bring food and activities to Edmontonians of all backgrounds in Churchill Square on April 23, 2022.
