Vaisakhi Greetings From The Seva Food Bank
Today is Vaisakhi. For Punjabis, it is a day of celebration representing the spring harvest. For Sikhs, it is the 312th anniversary of the establishment of the Khalsa by the tenth Sikh prophet, Guru Gobind Singh.
The Khalsa is the collective of all initiated Sikhs, who seek a life of mystical harmony with the Divine through introspection and service of those in need. Sikhs celebrate this momentous day all over the world with much joy and enthusiasm. Guru Gobind Singh’s core values of seva, selfless service, and sarbat da bhalla, the well being of all, are the foundation of the Seva Food Bank. His life motivates our many dedicated and passionate volunteers to serve their local community every day.
We thank you for your support of the Seva Food Bank. Your continued commitment to our mission directly touches the lives of the many client families who rely on our services every month. The Seva Food Bank has been open for a little over seven months and in that time over 100,000 pounds of safe, nutritious and culturally-appropriate food has been served to over 400 families in need.
So this year, as you reflect on the significance of Vaisakhi, we ask you to consider getting involved with the Seva Food Bank. Through donating funds, food, and volunteering, we can continue the fight against hunger in our communities and help put the lessons of Vaisakhi into practice.
Thank you again and we wish everyone the very best on the happy occasion of Vaisakhi!
