Langar Week: What is it and why is it important for the Sikh faith?

This week is all about highlighting the Sikh practice of langar.

Langar is a community kitchen and, as part of it, free vegetarian food is served in the kitchens of a Gurdwara (a Sikh temple) every day.

So although it's Langar Week, it doesn't just happen now. The aim of the next few days is to celebrate the practice and help more people understand what it is.

In the Sikh religion, anyone can enjoy langar, no matter what their faith, gender, age or status is.

It is offered by every single Gurdwara in the world.
