The community members of Kannada Sangha made generous donation towards the initiative and supported to the fullest extent that greatly facilitated to prepare the delicious food items along with Karnataka special cuisine and delicacies to the wider community of diverse culture that visits the temple. KSQ could raise good amount of fund to the temple.
The community members volunteered in cooking and serving the food to the devotees who come to the temple during the weekends and take the chance to relish delicious food at the canteen.
The volunteers thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the activities involved in running the canteen and shared their experience of having the ambience of wedding ceremony in India. They also said they are highly encouraged by the success of this event that they look forward to serve the wider community further by taking part in other initiatives.
