“Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment. In ancient India seva was believed to help one’s spiritual growth and at the same time contribute to the improvement of a community.
Seva Food Bank provides safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate food to low- income families living in Mississauga’s L5B, L5C, L4V, L5S, L4T, L5T, and L5P postal codes through our Wolfedale Rd and Slough St, Malton locations.
Seva Food Bank is a client-centric organization that focuses on bringing dignity in the way we serve food to our client families.
Sikhs have been part of Canada for over one hundred years. During this time, we have wholeheartedly contributed to the prosperity of this country, and Sikh-Canadians now call every territory and province their home. As our community matures, there is a need for an organization to channel the strengths and resources of Sikh-Canadians into various initiatives that will improve the quality of life of all Canadians.
Sikhs Serving Canada, a registered not-for-profit organization, mobilizes Sikh-Canadians to get involved in their communities. Through our extensive networks, we are able to contribute in a large variety of volunteer campaigns. These include assisting The Mississauga Food Bank, working with the Knights Table soup kitchen, planting trees with Evergreen and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. Our first permanent large-scale project is the Seva Food Bank.
