Offering Meal Dana

Our daily meal is at 11:00 AM. If you would like to offer a meal:

  • Offerings may be made by bringing a prepared meal for the meal time. To do so, please bring food that is pre-cooked and can be reheated here. Offerings may also be made by bringing prepared dishes at a more flexible time to drop off with Sāmaṇerī Juṇhā.
  • We take our meal in silence.
  • Ayya Ānandabodhī would be happy to meet with you after the meal for Dhamma discussion.
  • Please use the calendar below to find a date and complete the booking form. We will confirm via email with additional details. If you have any questions, please contact
  • Please note that we are vegetarian and collectively avoid wheat, cow dairy and nutritional yeast.

We are deeply grateful that you are considering offering a midday meal and look forward to seeing you and sharing this ancient tradition with you.
