Feeding our neighbors in need is an Islamic tradition. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) told us, “He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while his neighbor goes hungry” (as reported by Ibn Abbas). Sharing nutritious food with a person in need is one of the core components of Islam, and of Islamic Relief.
What’s inside an IRUSA Ramadan Food Package?
Why are food packages important?
Depending upon the size of the family served, a package can help extend the amount of food they have anywhere from a few days to two weeks—that means more food for more time, alhamdulilah. Plus, your donations help the local economy as well because the food in each package is purchased locally. This exclusive Ramadan food program is designed to complement longer-term relief and development projects that provide sustainable ways to improve living conditions—it’s a major part of IRUSA’s campaign to end hunger.

IRUSA donors will serve hundreds of thousands of people across 36 countries in Ramadan 2018. This will be its largest Ramadan food distribution ever: more than 295,000 food packages around the world—including 5,000 right here at home, along with grants for food pantries.
During the Ramadan season, in addition to the countries listed per price category, you can choose to give a general food box to help those most in need. Islamic Relief is committed to providing the Ramadan food package in the countries you select. In the event your donation arrives late or is delayed due to other, unforeseen circumstances, Islamic Relief reserves the right to allocate your food package donation to a different country.
