About Karma Kitchen

On February 15th, 2009 the long-awaited gift-economy cafe will launch in DC on Sunday afternoons at Polo India Club restaurant.  For those new to the concept here’s a brief intro:

Run mostly by volunteers, our meals are cooked and served with love, and offered to the guest as a genuine gift.  To complete the full circle of giving and to sustain this experiment, we leave it to the guest to pay it forward, expressing their goodness in whatever way they wish.  One immediate option is to contribute toward the cost of serving a future guest.  In keeping this chain going, the generosity of both guests and volunteers helps to create a future that moves from transaction to trust, from self-oriented isolation to shared commitment, and from fear of scarcity to a celebration of abundance. 

Karma Kitchen is the result of many inspirations.  One of these is Seva Cafe, which was first launched in India byManav Sadhna.  Following this, BeTheCause launched in Southern California, helping many others experience the powerful concept.  Then, Karma Kitchen was born in Berkeley, California.  Now, after a series of serendipitous meetings, it’s our turn here in the Washington, DC area.

    I can’t express how excited I am to get back to DC and spend time at Karma Kitchen! I thought I’d be saying goodbye to Seva Cafe in 2 weeks, but instead I have the same beautiful spirit of Seva awaiting me 🙂 Thank you for sharing this.

    Much love, Rakhee
