Any of you participate or are aware of buddhist groups or whole sanghas providing service in your community? If so what and where? Any problems encountered, or successes? In my city I'm not aware of any. There is a non-buddhist local Food Not Bombs, the group that takes food donations from supermarkets and cooks it for homeless people, though I work constantly and can rarely participate( I do work in a grocery store, so I try to provide them with as much food as I can).
