This event will draw a significant gathering consisting of supporters from Metro Vancouver Muslim communities including many influential stakeholders and decision-makers.

It will therefore be a unique sponsorship and exhibition opportunity for businesses, associations and community organizations. The event will feature presentations and displays about the Muslim Food Bank and our sponsors in addition to a delicious dinner.

The Muslim Food Bank is therefore providing businesses and marketers an opportunity to target decision makers in the Muslim market. As a result the following options are available to you-our potential sponsors:

  • Platinum Sponsorship Package – $2500
  • Gold Sponsorship Package – $2000
  • Silver Sponsorship Package – $1000
  • Bronze Sponsorship Package – $500

Benefits of sponsorship

  • Cultivating relationships with about 500 community members
