Meal Offerings

Offer a meal or a ride to a nun

We are deeply grateful that you are considering offering a midday meal
to the Nuns’ Sangha.

Due to the pandemic we ask you to take these special precautions:


  • After you have arranged a date for your meal offering by emailing to <>, please arrive by 10:45 am (summer time) or 10:00 am (winter time).
  • Please bring food that is cooked and can be reheated here, so that we know it is hot enough to be safe.
  • It’s also fine to bring fruits and vegetables that can be washed.
  • Please bring the food in containers that you will take back home with you. We will transfer food to our containers and use our serving utensils.
  • If you would like, you could eat outdoors at the vihara.
  • We currently have residents with the following food restrictions:

cinnamon free –  1 person
soy free –  1 person
gluten free – 5 people
dairy free – 2 people

  • It’s okay to cook with those ingredients, but please label the foods. For instance, if you use regular soy sauce that contains both soy and gluten.
  • There are a total of 9 women in residence.

We are happy to share this ancient tradition with you, and we look forward to your visit
and we rejoice in the blessings of your generosity!
