Homeless Outreach - Food Redistribution Program
Dharma Bum Temple, 4144 Campus Avenue, San Diego / University Heights
The Food Redistribution Program is about the practice of Generosity (Dāna in Pali) as taught by the Buddha. Every Thursday at 5pm we gather to prepare vegetarian food and then carry it directly to those who live on the streets and are hungry. Volunteers do not have to bring anything in order to participate; just offer a helping hand. Generosity is the first of the Six Paramitas and is practiced to remove the conditions that lead to greed.
