PETALING JAYA: Devotees and visitors will get free food at this year’s Thaipusam celebrations in Batu Caves, thanks to the Koperasi Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam.
The spiritual organisation has distributed free food during Thaipusam before, but never to this scale.
“Usually, we prepare for 10,000 but this year, we have enough to feed 100,000” said the head of the organisation, Rishi Nirantara.
Distribution booths are set up near the Batu Caves KTM train station and are conveniently close to the main temple.
Donations from followers and members of the public are used to provide for such a large number, said Rishi.
Volunteers arrived from 6am Thursday and will be working until Friday night to distribute the vegetarian meals.
