TASP Kids visit New Delhi Restaurant

Once upon a time, Ranjan catered a wedding for a pair of wonderful people who fell in love. They found out about Compassionate Chefs Cafe and the Tenderloin After School Program and became supporters. Over time, those two lovely people had a beautiful baby girl. To celebrate their daughter’s first birthday, they chose to have a Day of Service rather than a party. Because it was their girl’s birthday, who better to help them celebrate than the kids of TASP? And where is the best place to have lunch? New Delhi Restaurant!

So many thanks to Shweta and Rikin for making a great day happen! Happy birthday to your gorgeous girl!
