OUR KEY VALUES
The Habit of Giving
Sai Dham Food Bank was founded by Subhra Mukherjee and Vishal Khanna in 2012. The organization started when Subhra Mukherjee read a news report which stated the shocking statistics of people especially seniors living in poverty in her local community - the Region of Peel in Ontario. She was shocked by the number of seniors and individuals with disabilities who are unable to access services of food banks due to health and mobility issues. Both Subhra and Vishal believe the prevalence of hunger in our community is unacceptable and decided to take action to help eliminate hunger.
Their belief that “no one should go hungry” is reflected in their tireless work alongside Sai Dham Food Bank volunteers who are dedicated to providing healthy food to those who are less fortunate.
Today, Sai Dham Food Bank is open 24/7, provides and delivers food for free across 9 cities within GTA and has over 80 volunteers. Through the support of our generous donors, commitment of our volunteers, and community members – families and individuals, Sai Dham Food Bank has provided and delivered over 1 million pound of nutritious food to seniors and frail adults and families struggling with hunger.
