LINDENWOLD — Gurmeet “Ashu” Singh has a lifelong interest in quality food, the hospitality industry, and the latest culinary trends, and his concern for the low-income, veterans and disabled has benefited the entire community.
Singh, the CEO of the Nimit Palace, will be recognized by the Camden County Board of Commissioners in January with the 2023 Camden County MLK Freedom Medal.
The MLK Freedom Medal is presented to county residents who have selflessly contributed their time and effort to better their community in conjunction with the goals of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As CEO of the Nimit Palace, Singh oversees staff and new hires for training initiatives, oversees the restaurant budget and finances to ensure successful business outcome and manage all customer inquiries and complaints to deliver the most efficient customer service.
The county cited Singh for his “quiet service” to the community, giving of his time, prepared meals, and financial assistance to vulnerable community members.
“Gurmeet provides food and time to many local organizations including The Hunger Project, Camden County International Day Parade, Khalsa Aid Project, Indian-American Society of New Jersey, Guru Nanak Sewak Jatha of New Jersey, Asian American Alliance of South Jersey, United Sikhs, and The Shradha Foundation,” a county statement said.
The county said during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gurmeet also provided free weekly meals to hospitals and law enforcement officials. He has also offered direct financial assistance to veterans and distributing free turkeys and Thanksgiving meals to Lindenwold senior citizens.
“In addition to his routine provision of meals to organizations throughout the region, Gurmeet is deeply invested in making sure that low-income neighbors, senior citizens, and disabled people have easy access to resources they need,” the statement said.
“A one-man Uber, he often chauffeurs elderly neighbors and ensures that they are escorted to their destinations safely. Gurmeet successfully manages more than 80 volunteers across the organizations he works with.”
He also serves as a Democratic County committeeman in Linderwold.
Singh is also the founder of the Nimit Group in Voorhees, which specializes in IT and healthcare staffing needs across South Jersey and provide quality resources to clients with affordable pricing.
In January, he is being honored with:

*William and Gloria Jensen
