"Share what you have with others and consume together as a community"
Guru Nanak Dev Ji



On 9 December 2018, a little idea came to life. The idea was simple that we were going to provide free hot meals (Langar) to the general public in Woolwich, but of course keeping in mind the less fortunate and particularly the homeless. Langar is the term used in Sikhism for the community kitchen in a Gurdwara (Temple) where a free meal is served to all the visitors, without distinction of religion, caste, gender, economic status or ethnicity. This was started over 500 years ago by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji-the founder of the Sikh faith, who taught us that we are all one. We wanted to bring that kitchen out of the Gurdwara and on to the streets, where it first began


 

With no expectations and just the desire to serve, we set up our stall at the Market Entrance, across the road from Woolwich Arsenal DLR and Costa Coffee and with the help of the Erith & Belvedere Sikh Temple (GURU NANAK DARBAR GURDWARA) and the selfless volunteers we managed to feed around 30 people that day. This is how GND Street Seva was born. Seva means to serve and two months later we were serving an average of 85 meals per day and the number keeps growing as we continue to serve every Thursday and every Sunday at 6:30pm for an hour. As well as food and hot drinks we are also making it our objective to help those on the streets as much as we can. We have managed to provide shelter, sleeping bags, blankets and also items of clothing to keep those who are sleeping on the streets warm. Whilst we cannot help everyone, everyone can help someone. We wish to continue to grow, help and be able to make a small difference. So please share, follow and support us through our journey.
