Sikh ethos charity called Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen (GNFK) are linking with Preston Sikh Society to launch their service this Sunday in Preston.
GNFK are an award winning hunger relief charity that have been running weekly hunger relief feeds in Edinburgh, Peterbrough, Middlesbrough and Doncaster. The team – who are composed of Sikhs of a range of ages and backgrounds – provide the Sikh service of langar to those that need it. Langar is the Sikh concept of providing free vegetarian meals service for the entire community wherever they are based. Langar is served in ALL Gurdwaras (Sikh temples) around the world. There are over six million meals served through langar a day. Langar is entirely vegetarian so anyone can eat it and is provided entirely through voluntary service.
Groups like GNFK have been taking it out of the temple and onto the street to ensure it gets to those that need it. Approximately 15,000 meals a week are served on the streets of Britain a week to the homeless and hungry.
The launch of this feed in GNFK would make for a great news bulletin over the weekend and the team will make for great interviews too. To get in touch with the team directly you can call Gurmukh Singh on 07816 291294 or Gurnam Singh on 07801 843 024.
