As Muslims begin to celebrate Eid al-Adha, or the Festival of Sacrifice, a Toronto group believes it’s the perfect time to reach out to the community by providing fresh halal meat for those less fortunate.


The Qurbani Project, an initiative of the Toronto chapter of the Muslim Association of Canada, aims to distribute 1,360 kg of meat to as many as 300 GTA families — many of whom may not eat meat at all because they cannot afford it.
