Karma Kitchen DC

A taste of generosity!

Recap: Karma Kitchen Mar 01

Posted by karmakitchendc on March 3, 2009

With flakes of snow and wintry mix in the forecast, the morning started out cold. But it turned out to be a beautiful Sunday for Karma Kitchen DC.Β  The day started as enthusiastic volunteers got ready to serve and the first guest walked in perfectly on time. As the day progressed more people came in, and about 50 guests were served.

As the volunteers served and explained the spirit of Karma Kitchen to the guests, there was surprise, interest, gratitude, and even some thoughts/experiences of kindness and generosity shared amongst guests and between guests and servers… After enjoying their meals when the guests got a $0.00 check, they gave feedback about their experience with their share of pay-it-forward contributions and ideas. Many were so happy and even said they were inspired and hoped to spread the goodness through their acts of generosity as well.

Here are some notes from what guests shared after their experience:

  • This was our first time here and our experience went very well. The people were nice and the atmosphere was welcoming. I would recommend this place to ours and the concept is amazing, we need more things like this. I will pay it forward by contributions and volunteering.
  • Thank you for an immensely enjoyable meal. I will remember this experience for a long long time – and I’ve definitely been inspired to do something generous and “pay it forward”. One suggestion – I’m sure some of your local customers would love to be provided with a list of local charities, or some place to volunteer, or help out in some way. Thanx!
  • I am so glad that we stumbled pass Karma Kitchen! One suggestion for helping spread the word is to contact Compassion Over Killing and get listed at VegDC.com ! Looking forward to paying it forward…
