God’s Own Kitchen

Almost all the religion in this world advocate feeding the hungry.

No one should be hungry in a world which has abundant food for everyone.

Every religion promotes this.

Sikhism(a religion predominant in Indian subcontinent) too practices this humble act of kindness. Volunteers of Sikhism devote their time and resources in order to run the charitable kitchens. Almost everyone in Indian Subcontinent is aware of the Gurudwaras (Place of Worship for Sikhs) hosting a charitable kitchen. Anyone who is hungry can walk in to the kitchen and satiate their hunger.

A similar practice is followed in other religions as well. For example, Muslims too have a practice of Zakat(Alms to the poor) for which they donate food to needy on festivals.
