Support Aloka Vihara

Meal Dana

We are happy to share this ancient tradition with you and are deeply grateful that you are considering offering a midday meal.

If conditions are favorable, Ayya Anandabodhi and Anagarika Bethany will be in residence in Berkeley in April and May 2023 and then in Port Townsend, WA from June to December 2023.

Arranging a meal offering:

  • Offerings may be made by bringing a prepared meal at the meal time or by bringing prepared dishes at a more flexible time in advance of the meal.
  • Please use the calendar below to identify a date for which a meal offering is needed.
  • Complete the form to indicate your intention to offer a meal and we will confirm via email.

Additional information:

  • We are vegetarian and collectively avoid gluten, dairy and nutritional yeast.
  • Please bring food that is pre-cooked and can be reheated here.
  • The meal is served at 11am. Please plan to arrive early enough to allow ample time for reheating.
