Help Combat the Global Food Crisis

821 million people across the globe live in deep poverty and struggle to access food. Many don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

World Hunger is Rapidly Increasing

With 1 in 10 of the world’s population facing chronic hunger, global hunger levels are at a critical high.  

COVID-19’s lingering effects, extreme weather events, wars and conflicts have caused food insecurity to increase at an alarming rate.  

In Gaza, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Syria and more, families are having to make dangerous decisions when trying to solve their hunger. Choices that impact their and their children’s well-being and put them at risk of violence.  

But we can help them remove this burden. With food packs, we can provide aid and sustenance to families in need, helping them solve their hunger.

These packs include a variety of staple food items, such as rice, pasta, lentils, canned vegetables, and other essentials. This range of nutrients ensures that families have the food they need to celebrate, enjoy and engage in the blessings of the holy month without worry.

Together, let’s make a difference for families and communities in need around the world with compassion and hope. Help us provide essential food items that save lives.

Give food to those in need

The Prophet (ﷺ) said “The best of you are those who feed others.” (Ahmad). Give a food pack today and provide relief to the world’s most vulnerable.


  • Where does Islamic Relief distribute food packs?

    Islamic Relief delivers food Packs to the world’s most needy families. These include those in need in Afghanistan, Albania, Bangladesh (Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals), Bosnia, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mali, Niger, Pakistan, Palestine (Gaza), Sri Lanka, Somalia, Sudan, Türkiye (Syrian Refugees in Türkiye) and Yemen.

  • What items are included in the food packs?

    The contents of our packs vary based on which country they’re being delivered in. This is to account for the different needs and customs of people in different countries as well as supply.

    In general, each pack contains local, staple food that a family of up to 5 people can enjoy for one whole month. Contents may include rice, flour, vegetable oil, salt, pasta, beans, peas, sugar, lentils, dates and much more.

  • Why does a food pack cost more than previous years?

    Compared to previous years, we have seen prices of goods increase by 50% on average.

    In other countries, prices have increased by MORE than 50%, including in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lebanon, Niger, Pakistan, Palestine (Gaza), South Africa, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria and Yemen.

    As a result of this, to maintain the quality of aid we are delivering, we have had to increase how much we allocate towards creating a food pack. Despite this, our price increase is still well below market as we maintain strong relationships with suppliers and wholesalers around the world.
