Food Services for those in Need
We've been serving meals at the Gurdwara and to those in need in New Westminster and the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver for many years. We have also been blessed to be a founding partner of Guru Nanak's Free Kitchen which serves those in need in Vancouver and other parts of the Lower Mainland of B.C.
Feel Free to come by anytime during the day until 8pm/7 days a week. We serve free vegetarian meals to all those that need food. We ask that you dress modestly, ask for assistance if its the first time you visit a Gurdwara Sahib (Sikh Temple) or if you come regularly, that's great and we are there to help guide and serve you.
Taking care of the community around is a fundamental Sikh teaching and we encourage everyone, Sikh or not, young and old to participate in these sort of programs in the Lower Mainland or wherever you are, the need is great in all communities .
To volunteer in any of the initiatives to combat homelessness, please contact with us. Families are encouraged to prepare meals together for those in need and experiences the true meaning of Seva (Selfless Service).
How can YOU help?
Come talk to us - we have many Seva (volunteer) opportunities at the Gurdwara Sahib from helping out in the kitchen to helping to run the programs and services. We also occasionally need assistance with technology such as social media, video editing, live broadcast and filming events and again reach out via email or come talk to us in person.
Alternately - search around for local organizations and all communities have food banks, many charities that all need volunteers. We also recommend volunteering as a family, bring along your kids and teach and show them.
