ALL ABOUT SIKHISM
We have been learning what it is like to serve and receive Langar. Everyone donated vegetarian food and helped to serve, eat and wash up. Sharing food and serving in this way  is an important part of Sikhism. Everyone not only enjoyed the delicious offerings, but also said how wonderful it felt to serve others. We only accepted food we knew we would eat so as not to waste anything.
