Mother's Kitchen

Amma's Victoria children are now involved in a new seva for Mother's Kitchen projects to support the homeless. On Sundays, in addition to the regular Mother's Kitchen seva of making sandwiches at 10am, we are now coming an hour earlier to Ourplace. Ourplace is a community centre that offers meals to people living on the street.
Ourplace has generously offered the use of their kitchen to make cookies. The cookies are then donated to Reverend Al for the Dandelion Society. Reverend Al is a well-known pastor in the community, who reaches out to the hard to reach homeless. He starts his tour of commonly used spaces at 4:30am to bring hot coffee, and cookies and his warmth to those in need.
Mother's Kitchen
With Amma's blessings and grace, we are to be able to support Mother's Kitchen project by adding cookie making to the regular seva. Amma's children then come together with the local community after the sandwiches and cookies are made, and pray starting with the food prayer and then a Christian prayer. Amma's presence is felt deeply within all our hearts.
Mother's Kitchen
In deep gratitude for the blessing of service to others.
