Help Us Transform $10,000 To $40,000

We have a unique opportunity to raise a significant amount of money along with the Tenderloin After-School Program. Two of their donors have offered to match our donations up to $100,000!

The money generated by this fundraiser will be used to relocate TASP to their new home. They have been in temporary quarters since the fire of 2012. Our focus will be helping to create an “Inventors Corner” in the TASP classroom. This area will be furnished with tools and materials to help the kids imaginations manifest into hands-on discoveries. Your donation may be the catalyst for the next big invention.

Please help us help the kids of the Tenderloin After School Program!

Compassionate Chefs Cafe is already donating $10,000 – which has been matched to become $20,000. We have until November 15th to raise another $10,000, for a final donation of $40,000! Of course, we would love to raise more than that.

Please join us in this generous and unique opportunity! Your checks can be written directly to Compassionate Chefs Cafe or use your credit card through our website here.

Please make sure that the ‘Compassionate Chefs Cafe’ is the target of your donation.

As always, your donation is fully tax deductible and 100% of the funds go to help the kids of the Tenderloin After School Program and the children of Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India.

Thanks so much for your continued support. Please contact me with any questions.

Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief Collection

Compassionate Chefs Cafe and New Delhi Restaurant are partnering with Gupri Dosanjh to feed over a thousand victims of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake disaster in Nepal. We have joined hands with a local temple in Nepal to cook and serve these meals for a month. We are gearing up to send a container full of dry and canned food essentials like rice, flour, lentils, beans, cookies, canned vegetables, garbanzo, fruits etc, to Nepal. Our main request is FOOD FOOD FOOD… We will be assisting Dr. Chanjiv Singh with setting up food banks and making sure the temples can accommodate everyone for at least a month with langar (food). Also if you can get baby formula packets that would be great!!

We want to mention our gratitude to Christopher Kretz of the 5433-B Clayton Station Shopping Center in donating and providing a temporary space to collect and organize donations before it is shipped to Nepal. If you wish to donate, we kindly ask if you can also bring a large (4.5 cubic ft, 18″w x 18″d x 24″h) box or a medium (3 cubic ft, 18″w x 18″d x 16″h) box as part of your donation so that we can fill the shipping container efficiently. Donation can be dropped off with our volunteers on Monday 10am-2pm, Wednesday 3pm-6pm, Friday 1pm-3pm, Saturday 11am-2pm, Sunday 11am-2pm. Please call Ranjan Dey at 415.816.4068 to schedule a different time for donations if you cannot make it during above times or location.

Another critical item of immediate necessity are tents. These $25.00 waterproof tents not only provide shelter, but will keep the homeless earthquake victims dry during the heavy rains of the upcoming monsoon season.

A donation page with Heal our Nepali Friends has been started.

Please help!

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.
