Our Mission is to act on the basic Sikh tenets of sarbat da bhalla (the well-being of all) and seva (selfless service) to provide a sustained supply of safe, nutritious and culturally-appropriate food available for distribution to low-income families.

Sikhs Serving Canada

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.
