Luton community comes together to #skipameal

Luton Foodbank and its supporters will be using this Ramadan to raise awareness of food poverty in our town.

From Friday 18 May, we will mark the Muslim holy month with a series of events in Luton. The theme is charity and being a good neighbour, key values which bind us all. The events include a series of iftars (events marking the end of the daily fast at sunset) aimed at bringing together communities to share meals.

We have introduced the #skipameal hashtag to encourage people to skip lunch or afternoon tea, and come to one of our events with a donation of non-perishable food.

For more information about these events, please click the tabs below.
