If you’ve ever attended a Vaisakhi parade you know that food is a big part of the festivities.

Every year, hundreds of families cook up delectable Indian cuisine and give away free food along the parade routes. For these families, spending hours stuffing samosas and frying up pakoras is a labour of love. The act is a form of sewa, a word meaning selfless service, and it is a fundamental principle of the Sikh religion.
