Do you know that you can get free meals (lunch and dinner) at a Sikh temple near you? That's right. You can.
I have quite a few Indian friends. Some of them belong to the Sikh religion, but the ones who don't belong to the religion were the ones who told us about the free meals. And so every chance we get, we go to get free meals. They have donation box, so you can drop some cash into it, if you're feeling a bit guilty eating free meals when you can afford to buy one for yourself.
Feeding people is a ministry to them. Every day one family takes charge of feeding any visitor that comes. Honestly, each time we go, my hubs and I are the only non-Indians who eat there.
The last time I ate at a Sikh temple was when we went to Capitola for a day. Our friends told us about this Sikh temple in San Jose, supposedly the largest in the United States. They suggested we stop for lunch here since it was on the way to Capitola anyway.
