GURU NANAK’S COMMUNITY KITCHEN

Providing Food For Families, Children & Our Seniors

Our Community

Our community acknowledges the grace and dignity of every soul and we are dedicated to uplifting and feeding all and to bringing reverence to life through the practice of a lifestyle rooted in yogic principles and the core values of Sikh Dharma to advocate for hunger relief, serving food to all.

Our History

In the Sikh tradition of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, for 50 years, Guru Ram Das Ashram and Gurdwara has served weekly vegatarian meals in New England.  We have maintained a free daily community yoga and meditation practice.  On Sundays and the First Friday of the month we have a Gurdwara service, followed by Langar (a healthy vegetarian meal for all).

Our Mission

It is our aim to manifest the miracle of a community food relief  that is unified and sustained through spiritual practice, selfless service/volunteer work, sharing food, kindness, compassion, grace, and nobility.

WATER FEATURE RESTORATION PROJECT

Outdoor Meditation Site

In the 1930s, A Jewish community built a spring-fed, concrete pool on the east side of what is now the Guru Ram Das Ashram. The pool was used for recreation until 15 years ago when the concrete sides caved in and it became a safety hazard. The water feature restoration project aims to restore the pool to a natural water feature. We envision the pond as the centerpiece of a larger effort to engage and be in service to the surrounding community. The water feature will serve as an outdoor meditation site and will irrigate the community garden. The community garden in turn serves the Free Kitchen and the Ashram Food Program, which works to build food security for the surrounding area. We see the water feature as a jewel at the heart of a conscious community dedicated to developing peaceful, healthy communities.
