Offering Food and Supplies


As alms mendicants practising the Buddha’s ancient monastic way, we depend entirely on the kindness and generosity of the lay community for our daily food and all our other requisites. We are blessed with kind offerings of cooked food, groceries and supplies from near and far, including gifts of food brought to the Hermitage or care packages sent through a local grocer or by post.

Bringing a meal or offering food to the bhikkhuni community is a wonderful opportunity to visit and participate in our monastic way of life. If you would like to make an offering and join us for the meal please call or write to the Hermitage. The main meal is offered daily at 11.30 am.

May you be nourished by the food of kindness for the well-being of body and heart.
