What We Do

Our goal is to support our clients become self-sufficient, dignified members of Canadian society by assisting with immediate needs for food through our Food Bank Operations and providing a holistic range of support services as needed through our ASPIRE Community Support program.

The Food Bank Operations serves the needs of clients who have special dietary needs (halal, kosher, vegetarian, vegan, etc.). Our client base demographic is predominantly Muslim from all ethnicities, however we are non denominational and try to serve families from other faith and cultural communities.

The ASPIRE Community Support program promotes the development and independence of clients by focusing on the core areas of education, employment and community support.

Our Vision
The Muslim Food Bank and Community Services aims to be a sustainable organisation that promotes education, empathy and dignity through holistic interventions.
Our Mission
We are a community based organisation that provides food assistance and advocates self-reliance by providing case management, emotional support, youth development and capacity building.

The Society is run by an elected, volunteer Board of Directors. The Board oversees the Executive Director, Management Committees, staff and volunteers who manage the day-to-day operations of the programs.
