‘This place keeps me fed’: Langars coping with surge in users

Sikh-run communal kitchens called langars in Canada, which operate in Sikh worship and assembly spaces known as gurdwaras, are seeing a significant rise in attendance. Funded by the local Sikh community, these kitchens offer free lacto-vegetarian meals seven days a week to an increasingly diverse range of people, from international students to the homeless, regardless of religious background. Recent estimates suggest that about 10% to 20% of attendees are homeless or temporarily housed. The langars are seeing a 15%-30% uptake since the onset of the pandemic.
