TORONTO – Seva Food Bank is celebrating 8 years of service to the Canadian community this year and is marking the occasion with their Kirtan (prayer) program.
This year is special for another reason, as the food bank will also be kicking off construction of their Community Teaching Kitchen!
“We are thrilled to break ground for our Community Teaching Kitchen on our 8th anniversary,” said Kulvir Singh Gill, Board Chair. “Through this kitchen we will be able teach our clients healthy cooking using the groceries provided by our food bank. This is a significant step change in how we serve our local community.”
The Kirtan program will be organized in Malton, 2832 Slough Street, Mississauga, L4T 1G3.
In 2010, Seva Food Bank began as an initiative of Sikhs Serving Canada. They serve almost 900 low-income families, providing them a variety of support services and an average of 60,000 pounds of safe, nutritious and culturally-appropriate food.
It has two locations in Mississauga run with the tireless support of a committed staff team of five, a passionately involved board of eleven and hundreds of active volunteers.
