Regina's Sikh community giving back through free kitchen

The kitchen started about eight months ago and is run by Regina’s Sikh community.

Whether it’s hot or cold, rain or shine, the “Guru Nanak” free kitchen is open every Sunday on the corner of Dewdney Avenue and Angus Street in Regina.

Each week, the kitchen offers food to those who need it most.

“Every Sunday, we have not served less than 250 people,” said Hem Juttla, one of the kitchen’s volunteers and spokesperson.

“If everybody starts doing it, it’s more helpful for the people who need help, rather than just you, me and ten people doing it,” said Amarjyot Sahota, a volunteer.

“People from Moose Jaw, Estevan, Weyburn, Yorkton, all of them phoning us and saying how can we help you?” said Juttla. “Eventually, hopefully, we can take this whole thing to those cities too.”

The volunteers say giving back to the community is part of their culture.

Any food the group doesn't give away in the afternoon is donated to the YWCA...
