Annadanam or Maha Prasadam
Sri Shirdi Sai Baba and Bhagawan Sri Golagamudi Venkaiah Swamy encouraged Annadanam but are also considered as Annadana Prabhus. Annadanam is considered the highest form of charity. Anna Dāna is considered extremely pious and fulfilling because it is the only Dāna in which the recipient says "enough" or "not anymore."
SSVM serves Maha Prasadam (food) every day, to all devotees on a regular basis free of cost.
The Maha Prasadam may be sponsored by Mandir or devotees may bring cooked Prasadam to offer deities which is later distributed. Alternatively, devotees may also donate funds voluntarily towards Maha Prasadam for preparing at the Mandir.

Classes for Children (Saraswathi Bala Vidyalaya)
SSVM organizes Saraswathi Bala Vidyalaya for children between 5 years and 13 years of age. We conduct this children program on an academic year basis to impart Indian culture, human values, ethics and principles in Children by teaching value based moral stories from our scriptures Ramayana, Mahabharata, Maha Bhagavata Purana etc. SBV primarily addresses the spiritual needs of children and helps mold their personality through our value-based curriculum. Chanting Slokas and Bhajans impart spiritual health and improve their inner peace.
At the end of each quarter we will send newsletters to all registered devotees at no cost to them. All kinds of Mandir events are communicated to devotees through emails, Facebook and text messages from time to time.
