The Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen, concept was developed in the summer of 2007 when a group of like minded individuals got together and wanted to help with feeding those in need in Vancouver and do so by encouraging Sikh youth and organizations to volunteer their time and services.
The practice of langar – the communal kitchen and seva – the selfless service of humanity; philosophies taught by our first Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji many hundreds of years ago. For the Sikh community, this project is not missionary in nature, instead it is an opportunity for us to extend this true Sikh spirit of helping those in need regardless of caste, colour, creed, and economic status.
Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, our first Guru, laid the foundation of Sikhism on Seva: the selfless service of humanity; through ‘Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen’, we take this universal philosophy to the world!
This project is a collective effort by the entire Sikh community.
“Love All, Feed All”
