Langar On Wheels: Sikh-American Sonny Kakar’s ‘Seva Truck’ Gives Free Food, Become The Pride Of The Area

Darpan News Desk, 09 Dec, 2019

    A Sikh-American from Washington DC is operating a “Seva Truck”, via which he sends out free meals to locals in need, including schools and social work organisations.


    Washington DC-based Sonny Kakar bought an old FedEx truck, painted it orange and began operating his “Seva Truck”.


    His initiative specially targets kids at risk in underserved communities.


    In just three years since its inception, the orange truck has not only become the pride of the area but has also expanded to feed over 20,000 people.


    Showing his compassionate side, Kakar believed that there was need for such an initiative when he started it, but “we hope that ‘we are out of business’ in the future”.


    “We hope there won’t be a need for a Seva Truck because we hope that society reaches a stage where they do not think about serving themselves but serving the broader purpose.”


    In one of the schools where the truck has been regularly dropping off meals since last three years, the attendance has gone up by 30 per cent, Kakar said.


    Encouraged by the success Kakar opened another location in Michigan and hopes to spread his initiative across the country.
