Ramadan is almost here! Your $75 donation of a Ramadan Food Box means a family in need has something to break fast with. Boxes contain non-perishables and food that respects the local diet, and helps to stir the economy as food is purchased from local suppliers. Most of all, it helps make this time of year a source of hope instead of sadness. As you prepare for Ramadan, help vulnerable families prepare as well. After all, we are one.
What’s inside a food package?
Good stuff: Food that is important to the local diet and is designed to expand easy access to vital nutrients for families. Packages differ from country to country, but many include rice, wheat, lentils, oil, sugar, canned fish or meat, and dates. In some countries, in place of a physical package, vulnerable families are given vouchers and use those to purchase the items they need the most.

Why are food packages so important?
In addition to extending the amount of food a family has access to, your food package donations help the local economy because the food is purchased locally. Our Ramadan food program is specifically designed to complement projects that provide sustainable ways to improve living conditions—it’s a major part of IRUSA’s campaign to end hunger and poverty.
