Community Iftaar

We would like to invite members of the community, those who are fasting and those who are not, to join us for a community iftaar. This is an opportunity to connect with others and share reflections on your experiences of faith and of community in the Lower Mainland. Prayer space will be provided.

  • 8:15-9:00 pm: ice-breakers, reflecting on food and food systems, quiet reflection
  • 9:06 pm: snacks and refreshments

This event is hosted by SFU’s Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies and sponsored by the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm. Both centres aim to create spaces inclusive for all members of the Vancouver community regardless of denomination, race, class, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.

We would like to respectfully acknowledge that the land this event takes place on is the beautiful, ancestral, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam).

Please register for this event so that we can confirm how many people are coming.
