Regent Meals, Muslim Welfare Centre’s (MWC) newest outreach program, successfully launched a few weeks ago, on Thanksgiving long weekend. Members and volunteers of Muslim Welfare Centre will gather weekly to host a free halal meal program every Sunday from 11:30a.m. – 1:00p.m. at the CRC at 40 Oak Street, in the heart of Regent Park, Toronto.
The community of Regent Park is a vibrant area with residents who make up a diverse ethnic, religious, social, and economic diaspora. The Muslim community (primarily from Somalia and Bangladesh) currently accounts for close to 60% of the population, and is growing.
Previous to this program, there was no provision for halal meals available for community members in need. There was also no Sunday meal service available for anyone in the area so Muslim Welfare Centre quickly reacted and reached out to other organizations to see what could be done.
Sargent Farms was one of those partners! Sargent is proud to support this local initiative by providing fresh chicken on a weekly basis to MWC.
