As health officials push for more social distancing and self-isolation, a Surrey temple is creating a special service for those who can’t go out.
Gurdwara Dukh Nivaran Sahib (15255 68 Ave.) will be delivering groceries to seniors, people with disabilities and international students, according to a release Tuesday evening (March 24).
People who are in need of the service can reach the gurdwara at 604-780-2573, 604-537-1440 or 236-313-1984.
Meantime, the gurdwara is also offering a take-out langar.
A langar, in Sikhism, is the community kitchen in the temple where a free meal is served to visitors.
Gurwara Dukh Nivaran Sahib will have drive-through langar set up from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day for anyone who wants a hot meal.
More to come.
