Mother's Kitchen

“Love the poor wholeheartedly. Go to their level. Believe that it is your dharma, your duty to love and serve the poor.” ~ Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma)

In 1996, people inspired by Amma's teachings about serving the poor asked her if they should find a place with a real need and try to help.  When Amma said yes, Mother's Kitchens started.
The first group started in Oakland, CA.  In 1997, Seattle Satsang heeded this call and started cooking and serving the poor at the downtown Seattle Compass Center, and for a short time at the Oz House, as well as serving at an outdoor location.

Seattle Mother's Kitchen has a new location as of February 2023, cooking and serving at the Union Gospel Mission men's shelter (318 2nd Ave Extension South, Seattle, WA 98104). 

Seattle Mother's Kitchen is on the first Saturday of each month, and preparing and serving lunch to 110-150 people.   

It is Amma's desire that "Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day."
