SURREY (NEWS 1130) – During the pandemic Sikh temples across the Lower Mainland are stepping in to offer help to those in need.
The Gurdwara Dukh Nivaran Sahib in Surrey will send volunteers out to deliver groceries to seniors, people with disabilities and international students.
The temple will also be offering a drive-through langar, or drive through meal service for those in need.
In Sikhism, langar refers to free meals offered to all visitors at the temple’s communal kitchen.
The langar will be held from 7 am to 10 pm every day, since dining at the temples has been banned.
Volunteers or anyone wanting to donate food are asked to contact the temple.
