​​​​​Annadanam - Feeding the Poor











For the last thirty years, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba Temple, Pittsburgh, has been conducting annadanam in India and in the U.S.A.  Packed lunches are made and distributed to local soup kitchens in the USA.  The Temple has supplied tens of thousands of free meals each year to the needy.  This year, the Temple hopes to supply 50,000 free meals in rural India.  These are delicious, nutritious meals provided to local villagers, many of whom are elderly, young, or otherwise unable to always procure enough food.  A typical meal consists of a large helping of rice, dahl, a vegetable dish, and a sweet.  Everyone is served until they are satisfied! We kindly ask your donation of any amount to help the needy (Click links below to sponsor).
