Acceptable Donations of Grocery items

Dear Devotees

We accept donations of certain grocery items from devotees and use them during preparation of Bhandara prasadams. However, we have noticed that some devotees have been donating items that the Bhandara team cannot accept due to various reasons. This has caused significant challenges for our team as they struggle to dispose of these items safely.

Please find below a list of the specific food items that the kitchen can/cannot accept, as donations from devotees.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


All items should be brand new, and sealed in original packaging.
