Hope you are well.
Like the rest of our community and country, the COVID-19 crisis has tremendously impacted Kalachandji’s. Our current takeout receipts come to 10% of our normal income, and our staff are now unemployed. We are providing support for them as best we can, but will soon need help to keep our team together.
At the same time, we have received requests from homeless shelters to increase our organization’s Food For Life free vegetarian meals program. With this fundraiser we hope to accomplish two goals – serve our community, and provide some income for our staff.
It costs us about $500 for one service of 300 meals at a shelter. The more we can collect, the more we can serve. If we can collect $30,000 over the next 2 months, we can serve meals 20 times a month, along with providing our staff a minimal stipend to get them through this crisis.
Please give what you can. We are offerring a free dinner for two for donations of $100 and up, one free dinner for donations of $50, and a vegan brownie for every donation of $30 (just bring your receipt).
Thank you very very much!
