TORONTO – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the Muslim Welfare Centre in Toronto on Thursday and took part in their Project Ramadan initiative that assembles food baskets that is distributed to the needy in the city.

“`Eid Mubarak, everyone. What a pleasure to see the community come together in generosity and support, working hard for our neighbors, working hard for those who are less fortunate,” Prime Minister Trudeau told the Project Ramadan volunteers.

“It really is something that is so typically Canadian to be there for our neighbors,” remarked the Prime Minister.  “But it is also at the heart of what it means to be Muslim – to be generous, to be present in your community, to be contributing.”

Established in 2009, Project Ramadan fundraises, assembles and distributes baskets containing staple food items that help recipients – regardless of race, nationality or ethnicity – create healthy, balanced meals during the holy month of Ramadan.

According to Project Ramadan, its mission is ‘to build food baskets that will provide one month’s supply of food, household goods and a little bit of extra happiness to a local Toronto-area family in need.’.. -
