Where: Angel & Camden Town, London

Volunteers from the Dialogue Society distributed free Doner Kebab meals from a mobile catering vehicle in Angel & Camden Town, London. Meals were distributed to passers-by together with leaflets explaining the Muslim festival of Festival Eid al-Adha (Kurban). Volunteers explained the significance of Muslims sharing the Eid meal with their friends and neighbours as well as distributing it to the most needy within their communities

Passers-by who enjoyed the meal expressed their gratitude and an interest in learning about future activities to be organised by the Dialogue Society.

Description

A project which involves the distribution of free meals from mobile catering vans/units to the public with a three-fold A4 leaflet explaining that as Muslims, this is an attempt to share the festivity of Eid al-Adha, that is one of two major Islamic festivals of the year.

This is a most celebrated day in the Muslim calender; a Christmas-equivalent in terms of festivity and joy. The aim of the project is to share this festivity with the wider community, whether Muslim or not.

Objective

  • To open up communities towards one another and facilitate community and neigbourhood cohesion at the grassroot level.
  • Counter negative stereotype about Muslims.
