Food stall in Kings Heath village square 15 April 2017

Helping the homeless

Members of the local Sikh community have set up an occasional food stall in memory of George of Peacock Road. George was well-known in the neighbourhood and died suddenly earlier this year.

His family and friends have run two food stalls so far in the village square in March with more planned over the coming weeks. They prepare and offer cooked food with the overall aim of helping economically disadvantaged people. Those who would otherwise go hungry are given free food. Those who can afford it are asked to make a donation. All donations will be used to fund future food stalls and to provide clothing and other necessities for local homeless people.

The project is part of the Sikh principle of Seva which involves performing a service to the local community for the benefit of everybody.
