Khalsa Care Foundation (KCF) is a Sikh Gurdwara located in Pacoima, California. Much of the community in the Pacoima and surrounding cities fall in the lower income bracket; many families in the area are struggling to maintain a roof over their head and food on the table. At KCF, we believe that no one should worry about how and if they will be able to feed their children and family. The Khalsa Food Pantry was established in 2012 to help serve that need and has been giving groceries to families in the area weekly since then. There is enough food for the week and include perishable and non-perishable items, such as cans, bread, cereal, pasta, fruits, and vegetables. The list goes on and we pride ourselves in having the resources to be able to continue this important service since then.
