Hari OM!

On Saturdays, we cook for a homeless shelter…

For the last 4 years, twice a month, volunteers cook and serve a meal at a homeless shelter, for about 100-120 residents. Few service projects do as much immediate good or offer such a meaningful, personal experience as volunteering to prepare and serve a meal to people in need.

*During the COVID-19 pandemic, all meal providing is “delivery only,” and volunteers cannot enter the shelter to cook or serve. We are cooking either at home or at Haridwar following all COVID-19 guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering, please send mail to “sheltercooking@cmportland.org

We encourage you to sponsor one time meal for the shelter ($150) or part of the meal through the button below, we will keep it as the seed money dedicated for this activity.  Please check with your employer about matching grants, it doubles your donation’s impact today!



Thank you for your kindness & generosity in advance!
