What is Langar?

"The Langar  or free kitchen  was started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev  Ji. It is designed to uphold the principle of equality between all people  of the world regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender or social status. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of Langar expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness and oneness of all humankind. "..the Light of God is in all hearts." (Siri Guru Granth Sahib, pg. 282)

For the first time in history, Guruji designed an institution in which all people would sit on the floor together, as equals, to eat the same simple food. It is here that all people high or low, rich or poor, male or female, all sit in the same pangat  (literally "row" or "line") to share and enjoy the food together."

Thursdays - 12:30 pm
We serve langar to all sangat members and community members in our langar hall.

We also serve a free langar immediately following our Sunday Gurdwara services in our langar hall. All are invited to share in this meal.
