Langar Aid is a project by humanitarian aid organisation, Khalsa Aid International. We follow Sikh principle of “ Vand Chakna - Share Your Food” by breaking down barriers, building community cohesion that allows people regardless of religion, age and gender to come together by sharing food and helping those in need.
In Coventry we are currently serving the local homeless 7 days a week every evening. This takes places outside our premises in Spon End. We need volunteers to help prepare and pack meals that we distribute to the homeless. This would involve helping to serve during the evening feed and helping to pack and arrange emergency food parcels.
Langar Aid also holds annual events and takes part in various community events bringing people together by serving free food. Due to covid19 we have not been able to confirm any of these events as yet. When these events are back to normal we will need volunteers to man stalls at events and help with raising awareness.
We are looking for volunteers to commit to volunteer for at least one shift a week over a period of six months. Volunteer shifts available on the following days/times:
|Monday||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Tuesday||9.30am – 12.30pm||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Wednesday||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Thursday||9.30am – 12.30pm||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Friday||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Saturday||9.30am – 12.30pm (Every other Saturday)||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
|Sunday||4.00pm - 6.30pm|
An induction will be given on arrival along with information about our Code of Conduct. You will also be buddied with a senior volunteer.
Food Safety and Hygiene training will also be provided. References can also be provided for employment or further volunteering.
