As part of its annual Ramadan fundraising effort, Luton Foodbank is inviting the people of Luton to take part in its FAST-A-THON on Friday 9 June. With the need for foodbanks at an all-time high nationwide, it is more important than ever to make sure no member of our community goes hungry.
Taking part in FAST-A-THON is easy. All you have to do is skip one meal on Friday 9 June, then donate the money that would have been spent on that meal. Additionally, a sponsorship form can be downloaded from lutonfoodbank.org.uk/fast, so your friends and colleagues can make your efforts even more helpful.
Project Manager Salma Khan said, ‘It’s shocking that hundreds of familes in Luton don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Our FAST-A-THON is a fantastic way to help and raise awareness of the issue. As well as helping to fight the rising tide of food poverty in Luton, it can give some small insight into how it feels to be short of food.’
You can send your FAST-A-THON money to Luton Foodbank online or take it along to Mashwi Restaurant in Crawley Road on the evening of Friday 9 June. At 9pm, the team at Mashwi—committed supporters of Luton Foodbank—will provide a special three-course meal for sponsored FAST-A-THON participants.
Meanwhile, the hashtag to watch and use on social media is #fastathon2017

Hello It was a great focus to give up one meal on 9th June. It made me think of those who are starving and have no food or do not know where their next meal is coming from. A great idea and I hope this grows each year. Blessings to you all.
