Feeding the Hungry - Food Redistribution Program

Every Thursday at 5pm The Dharma Bums gather to prepare vegetarian food and then carry it directly to those who need it. We pass out food to the people living on the streets of downtown San Diego. Volunteers are welcome to bring peanut butter, jelly or bread but it is not necessary. You can also just show up offer a helping hand! Practicing generosity means to give our time, energy and resources to help others without judgement. Generosity is the first of the Six Paramitas and is practiced to remove the conditions that lead to greed, which causes our suffering. This practice is as much for you as it is for others.
