A little bit of context

The Sri Selva Vinayakar Kovil (Ganesh Temple) is situated outside the Brisbane city and has served as a place for spritual upliftment for the Brisbane Hindu community over the last 25 years. Over these years, the number of devotees that are visting the temple has increased. As a result of this, the temple has been through an expansion process in order increase the capacity of the temple to handle large volumes of devotees. The cafeteria in the temple premises assists the temple to perform its duties to the community via the sale of vegetarian food items.  Earnings from this cafeteria are used to support the temple in performing its role as a spiritual centre to the wider community.  

But there’s a problem

However, the size of the current cafeteria is not sufficient enough to cater to the large numbers of devotees that are visting the temple, this is due to fact that the cafeteria is not large enough for the volunteers that work in the cafeteria on a regular basis. 

Here’s what we’re doing about it

The solution to this is to expand and enhance the cafeteria to include facilities such as exhaust fans, cooking pots, bigger spaces for storage so that it is able to operate efficiently and effectively in regards to serving devotees.  With an expanded cafeteria, the cafeteria will be able to continue its crucial role in assisting the temples ability to operate effectively. 

You can join us

You can be involved in this initiative, by supporting this cause via donations. Our target is to raise over $50,000 so that we are able to use these funds in order to commence the process to complete an industrial kitchen with the necessary equipment. The upgrades to equipment are as follows; enhanced exhaust system, larger cooking areas in order support increased demand, a proper cold room to store frozen items. This initial fundraising will be used as a deposit to commence the upgrade.
