Karma Kitchen DC Going on Retreat After April 10th

Open letter to Karma Kitchen DC Community:


It has been a little over two years since we started Karma Kitchen DC at Polo India Club (now Dalchinni). We have had an incredible journey thanks to our volunteers, guests, and larger community. We have witnessed some amazing ripples of kindness and expressions of generosity which keep us, the KK DC Core Team, inspired and motivated week after week. 

As you may know, the restaurant which housed Karma Kitchen recently changed management and the restaurant is heading in a different direction. Now - after two years of whirlwind action - we are taking a pause to search for a new home for Karma Kitchen. We hope this pause serves as an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the deeper values, of inter-connectedness, trust and abundance that Karma Kitchen stands for -- and we're looking forward to seeing all of you when we're back! April 10th will be the last Karma Kitchen at Dalchinni Restaurant. 

While we are searching for a new restaurant, we are hoping to keep up the spirit of Karma Kitchen by having "Guerrilla Kindness" style activities on Sundays. Please continue to sign up to volunteer and let us know if you have any ideas!

If you have any suggestions for restaurants/owners we should talk to, please let us know as soon as possible!

In service,
