From Youth Camp to Food Bank

Canadian Sikh youth start 2 food banks in the spirit of seva....

Seva Food Bank provides safe and nutritious food to low income families. They are located in Mississauga, Canada. It was started by a group of young, highly motivated volunteers who all met at a Sikh youth camp. This seva group discovered a food bank, and became a branch of a larger organization. They started with one location and have now moved into a second location, where they serve a total of 750 families every month. Many of the clients are so inspired by these efforts that they come back as volunteers. This group also serves as an outreach because many people they serve have never met a Sikh before.
