About 15 Sai volunteers who attend the weekly Saturday devotional sessions at Sai Prema Nilayam, Riverside, California, gather at 9 a.m. to prepare food packets for the neighborhood’s homeless people. They assemble 108 packets containing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, burritos, pizzas, fruits, water bottles, snack packs, and water, all generously donated by volunteers.

By 11 a.m., the volunteers get into three or four cars and drive through downtown Riverside, seeking out and personally handing over a food packet to any homeless person they encounter on the streets. The entire service, from packing to distribution, takes about two to three hours.

The feeding project is a dedicated effort to make a positive impact on the neighborhood. At times, Sai volunteers also distribute clothing such as underwear, blankets, and hygiene kits. The homeless recipients often express their gratitude, saying, “God bless you.”

A volunteer reflected, “It is a small yet significant gesture, just a little service we can offer to those in need. We are grateful to our beloved Sai for guiding us to drive around, seek out, and serve our homeless brothers on the streets.”
