Salem Sikh volunteers make more than 1,000 meals for hospital workers during COVID-19

For the past few weeks, a team of about six volunteers from Salem’s local gurdwara, the Sikh house of worship, have prepared and delivered more than 1,000 meals for health care workers as a thank you and sign of solidarity. 

The small team from Salem’s temple, Gurdwara Dasmesh Darbar, has been preparing homemade, vegetarian meals for front-line healthcare workers at Salem Hospital and plans to continue their efforts as long as they’re able and needed.
