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.
- Thousands expected to attend this weekend's Vancouver Vaisakhi parade
- These are all the events celebrating Sikh Heritage Month in BC
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.
Here’s where to find delicious free eats made with purpose during Vaisakhi 2019.
