SASKATOON -- Members of the Sikh Society of Saskatchewan gathered Friday in the Pleasant Hill neighbourhood to give away free meals to people in need.

The donation was held in honour of a Sikh holiday celebrating the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, who founded the Sikh religion.

Balginder Dhaliwal, a member of the society, called the event an act of selflessness.

"We thought we should pay tribute to him and follow his preachings and one of his teachings was to share whatever you have, whether that’s food, whatever you can give to the needy around you."...

...“This is what a great cause can be when you have more, I'm very fortunate to have what I need to live a good life so I would like to give back to the community now,” Dhaliwal said.

The Sikh Society of Saskatchewan will offer free meals at all Sikh temples after services on Sunday.
