MEMBERS of the Sikh community teamed up with the Midland Langar Seva Society over the weekend to provide food for the homeless people of Exeter.
The act of hospitality took place as Sikhs across the globe celebrated the birthday of the religion’s founder Guru Nanak.
One of the three pillars of the religion involves helping those in need, and on Sunday members of the Sikh faith did just that by hosting a community kitchen at Exeter Cathedral and also a table in the City centre in which the homeless were provided with food.
Chaz Singh, who helped out at the event, said “As members of the Sikh community we offered a vegetarian meal to those in the Exeter community that needed it most, regardless of religion, gender or social class. One of the 3 pillars of Sikhism is helping those in need and we can all say on behalf of the Sikh community that we were thrilled to help out in this way to coincide with Guru Nanak’s birth in Exeter.”
