Sikhcess™ Announces Launch of Sikh Community’s Global ‘Feed the Homeless’ Campaign in March 2008

Sikhcess™ to launch worldwide ’Feed the Homeless Campaign’ on March 1, 2008 with volunteers in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Chicago, IL, January 13, 2008 --( Today, Sikhcess™, a community service organization, unveiled definitive plans to feed the homeless worldwide through its ‘Feed the Homeless’ campaign on March 1, 2008. Sikh communities throughout the globe will participate, with efforts to feed the homeless and needy in Canada, the United States, Great Britain, Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia.

“There has been tremendous interest from people across the world hoping to reach out and help those in need,” stated Mr. Amit Singh, Executive Director of Sikhcess™. “My phone has not stopped ringing and my email inbox is always full. Volunteers are clearly eager to help feed the homeless, a founding principle of the Sikh faith.”

The Sikh institution of ‘Langar’ was started by the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak. It is the only free kitchen of its kind in the world, collectively serving millions around the globe each year, regardless of gender, social standing, caste, color, religious affiliation, or beliefs. Through this ideal of equality, the tradition of ‘Langar’ expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness, and oneness of all humankind.

Working to address homeless hunger, Sikhcess has taken ‘Langar’ (or ‘Free Kitchen’) to those on the streets. On November 17, 2007, Sikhcess launched its first large-scale ‘Feed the Homeless’ campaign with great success. Volunteers throughout North America successfully distributed nearly 50,000 individual food packages to the homeless and needy in just one night - the largest campaign of its kind.

“There are homeless and hungry people across the world, many of whom consume well below the daily food requirement to live. Sikhcess™ is working with Sikh communities around the globe to help alleviate their suffering through the simple act of delivering a nourishing meal. We will do everything we can to help donors and volunteers make that happen,” says Mr. Singh.

Inquiries for donations of food and supplies for distribution to the homeless should be directed to or to Mr. Amit Singh at 248-990-1245.

About the Sikhcess™ ‘Feed the Homeless’ Campaign:

The ‘Feed the Homeless’ campaign began in January 2007 in Vancouver, Canada. The campaign’s initial goal was to distribute 15,000 food packages to Vancouver’s homeless population within 12 months. The entire Sikh community rallied behind the program in Vancouver, and within only 9 short months, more than 20,000 packages were delivered. Now 70,000 food packages have been distributed throughout the United States and Canada.

Through the efforts of this campaign, food packages have been delivered to homeless communities in Vancouver, Toronto, New York, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Boston, Newark, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Fairfax, Houston, Atlanta, Cleveland, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Miami.

Every month, the homeless and needy receive thousands of food packages generously donated by the entire Sikh community. In exchange, Sikhcess™ volunteers receive countless hugs, smiles and a heart-felt “thank you”, many times over. Sikhcess™ thanks all those who contribute to the ‘Feed the Homeless’ campaign with their charitable support of time, effort, food, and kitchen facilities.

Sikhcess™ does not accept financial donations of any kind. Inquiries for donations of food and supplies to the homeless should be directed to or to Mr. Amit Singh at 248-990-1245.
