Fresno's Poverello House will be able to serve nearly 40 thousand meals thanks to a generous donation Saturday.

The Sikh community presented a $21 thousand check to the non-profit during the news conference.

The donation will provide every breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Poverello House this month.

Staff members say they serve about 13 hundred meals every day.

The Sikh community started making annual donations four years ago and the goal is to increase the amount by $1 thousand every year.

Members say this is a way to give back to the community and raise awareness of their religion.
