Offer a Meal
An Expression of Generosity
Help continue a tradition that has flourished in Asia since the time of the Buddha – the offering of meals to spiritual practitioners.
Food is offered to meditators, teachers, and staff as a simple act of generosity. Meal dana often celebrates a birthday, expresses appreciation for a dear one, honors someone who has died, or commemorates another of life’s many milestones.
If you or your group of friends would like to offer a meal, you can provide us with an optional brief dedication. This will be inscribed on our Meal Dana board at either or both of our centers for a particular day or meal that you select. Dedications can be anonymous, or acknowledged with your name(s).
Donating meals is a direct way to support the IMS community. Your generosity will nourish your fellow meditators, teachers sharing the dharma, and staff and volunteers serving IMS. Your donation is tax-deductible. We suggest the following amounts to help us meet our food costs:
