Compassionate Chefs Cafe
Twice every year – Third Sunday of May and November, New Delhi Restaurant transforms into Compassionate Chefs’ Cafe – a unique space of giving and selfless service.
This is a social endeavor to see what happens when a San Francisco Bay Area community comprised of caring people, business owners, volunteers, and world renowned chefs – all converge to harness and focus their generosity. It’s a celebration of fine dining and merriment, all working to empower the less fortunate children in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco and in Ahmedabad, India.
What is the power of giving? What is the power of love? Come join and see for yourself!
Closer to home, we are supporting Tenderloin After School Program – which provides valuable services to kids of families living in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. TASP serves as a shelter from street culture and many harmful influences like drugs, gangs, and human trafficking that abound in this area. TASP provides kids a safe space to be in, where they can play, study and get proper support and training to succeed.
Gandhi’s intention behind his Ashram in Ahmedabad, India, was to help uplift the underprivileged. On this very location, we are helping to fund the school for children of Harijan (untouchable) street cleaners and slum dwellers. This school helps us continue Mahatma Gandhi’s movement to eradicate social injustice.
These children will help to uplift their impoverished community from within.
