Norwich Sikh community to offer free grab-and-go dinners Mondays and Fridays
Norwich — The Sikh Community of Norwich will provide hot grab-and go-meals on Monday and Friday evenings, starting Friday, during the COVID-19 emergency.
The meals will be available from 5 to 6:30 p.m. outside The Royal Punjabi restaurant, 198 Main St., Norwich, on those days. The service is part of the concept of Langar, a community meal in the Sikh faith, said Swaranjit Singh Khalsa, a member of the World Sikh Parliament.
“Langar, the concept of community meal, is integral part of Sikh faith and we are glad to have opportunity to support the need of our Norwich community,” Khalsa said in a news release announcing the new service.
He thanked local Sikhs and Gurpreet Singh, owner of the restaurant, for taking the initiative to start the program, the only dinnertime community meal program in the city.
Free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meals are available outside St. Vincent De Paul Place, 120 Cliff St., Norwich, and lunch meals are provided by local faith groups from 1 to 2 p.m. Sunday outside St. Vincent de Paul Place.
