DC Central Kitchen

Please join us at DC Central Kitchen to prepare a Jain meal for 4500+ needy people. We will save hundreds of animal lives (giving them Abhay Daan) by serving them Jain food. We talk and preach about our Jain principle of ahimsa (non-violence) – here is the opportunity to put it in practice.

Over the last few years, more than 45 volunteers join together on this community service project. Once again, JSMW has agreed to prepare Jain meal for 4,500+ needy and homeless people in the DC-Metro area.
