What Midland Langar Seva Society have achieved in the UK
The journey all started back in 2013 in Walsall town centre with a handful of dedicated volunteers serving 50 meals servings per week.
Today MLSS are blessed to be from 24 City locations, with over 400 volunteers, a fleet of transport and a Bus. Today's feed MLSS serve over 30,000 meals per week. In 2013 MLSS was inspired by Guru Nanak Dev Ji 1st Guru of Sikhs. Vandkeh Shakna, to share what you have with others. MLSS was formed with some volunteers.
The inspiration and vision continued and spread into Birmingham, Wolverhampton, from the Midlands, then afterwards other locations such as London, Bristol, Blackpool. There were no shortage of volunteers, and donations were plenty and gratefully received. As a result, MLSS attracted the attention of businesses, partners and the media. As the expansion grew MLSS were truly humbled when nominated for awards for contributions to Britain.
MLSS need funding to support the following projects and we desperately rely on support from you.

In 2017 the Midland Langar Seva Society launched its biggest project to date, the ‘Guru Nanak Dev Ji Langar Bus’, allowing our teams to now travel and accommodate to poverty-stricken areas and give service users the chance to move away from the cold to be in a warm and safe environment, even if just for a little while.
We have plans in place to use the Bus for moments of disaster to come to the aid of those in need, like with that of Grenfell.
Where do you come in?
We are always on the look out for new volunteers to come on board and help us move forward with our projects.
However, if you find you are unable to volunteer, we also require help with funding in order to continue supporting these projects and enables us to remain consistent in meeting the needs of those who truly need it.
If you think either of these speak directly to you, fill out the form below, highlighting how you wish to help and if you're volunteering, where you will be available to assist!
Although UK homelessness was where the project began, you can see from the services below, we will stop at nothing to 'Build a Better Britain'.
