Support Feed the Need in Durham
The Give 30 Movement is all about caring for our neighbours and fighting hunger together during the month of Ramadan. The concept of the campaign is simple: everyone, regardless of faith, gives to the Give 30 Campaign Food Banks during Ramadan. Give 30 was created in 2012, by Toronto lawyer and activist Ziyaad Mia. Since then it has grown into a grassroots movement supporting food banks in communities across Canada,the United States and Australia.
