The Appeal-Democrat, reporting out of the Yuba City, California area, highlights the activities of SEVA Selfless Service, a Sikh youth group in northern California that provides meals for the needy and homeless in the area:

“We don’t do this for religion. Our purpose is to serve food, and that is all,” [co-founder Daman Singh Bhangu] says.

The recipients, he says, “are just getting a meal. We’re getting a lot more out of this. It helps us grow as human beings.”
