Preston’s Sikh community is putting on the monthly food event.

Under the city’s Fish Market canopy the event is looking for people to donate food.

The Langar or free kitchen was started by the first Sikh Guru in about 1481 – and the Preston community has brought the idea to the city.

They state: “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, to eliminate extreme povery in the world and bring about the birth of ‘caring communities’.”

Last month’s kitchen fed around 40 people with savoury and sweet treats.

The kitchen takes place from 4pm on Sunday (26 March).

Food drop off or donations can be made to the Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Langa by contacting Giani Kamaljeet Singh on 07540445140. They are also looking for more volunteers to join – and anyone can help.
