In 2014, local eatery Shawarma Khan, Give 30 and Winnipeg Harvest put on the first Fast & Furious Feast. The event is inspired by Ramadan and the spirit of empathy, social solidarity and giving that all paths of faith and morality share. Last year, we attracted more than 800 people and raised a record-breaking $25,000. This year, we are expecting an even bigger crowd – so get your tickets now!
About the Fast & Furious Feast
Fast & Furious Feast is an initiative of Give 30, a national grassroots campaign that calls upon people of all beliefs to support their local food bank in the spirit of compassion, community and social solidarity during Ramadan.
FAST! During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and give to charity.
FURIOUS! Did you know that nearly 64,000 Manitobans depend on a food bank each month? Nearly 41 per cent of those are children.
FEAST! Generous local vendors donate and prepare an all-you-can-eat community feast for hundreds of people on the streets of Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. Winnipeg Harvest receives 100 per cent of ticket sales to support our mission of fighting hunger and feeding hope.
