The Aasraa Food Pantry, sponsored by the Sikh Youth Alliance of North America has its home in the Sikh Gurdwara of Rochester, MI.
A mainstay of Sikh beliefs is to serve God’s creation through acts of sevaa (selfless service). Sikhi was founded by Guru Nanak and from its inception has had a strong commitment to serving others.
Aasraa Food Pantry is a community-based food distribution center providing access to basic food necessities for families in need; regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age or disability. We accomplish this through the generous giving of time, labor and financial support from dedicated community volunteers.
