Food Sponsorship Program: CHANGES EFFECTIVE 01.01.2011
We have made some important changes to the Food Sponsorship Program at the Temple. Due to the involvement of Volunteer Groups who have stepped forward to cook food at the Temple on Sundays, we will no longer charge a donation for food served at the Temple on Sundays. We will continue to charge a donation for major events at the Temple due to the costs involved. Please contact Neeru Piplani 234-1071 OR Savita Kaushal 461-1193 if interested in volunteering for food preparation. The charge to sponsor the food program on Sundays is $250. This donation will go 100% to the Temple. Please contact Dilip Shukla 808-2505 OR Ramesh Piplani 445-4223 if you would like to sponsor.
We are also looking for Sponsors for the following items used for the food program: Water Bottles (Vikas Khurana), Rice, Daal, Sugar, Ghee, Vegetables, Roti. If interested, Please contact the Food Commitee Members listed above.
