Community Feast – Southall Temple

14 Westmill volunteers teamed up with the Shree Ram Mandir temple in Southall to serve a special lunch to the local community.

We worked together with volunteers from the temple and a local restaurant to prepare and serve a delicious lunch to over 500 people from the Southall community. We served 3 different types of curry alongside rice, salad, puris and a dessert to the community who all ate together in the hall that we had specially decorated. From rolling rotis to serving food, clearing plates, handing out flyers and decorating the hall – everyone got stuck in and played their part in making the day so special. The result was a delicious lunch and a fantastic opportunity to come together with local organisations to give back to the community in Southall
