Cooking for Cause was founded in 2019 by Shivi Jain to serve the most vulnerable people on earth via purposeful relief and development.
The major challenges facing a community, such as lack of access to water, debilitating socioeconomic problems, and child hunger, are addressed in collaboration with local leaders.
Thirst Project to Build a Freshwater Well in Uganda
Shivi Jain and Sahil Jain initiated a creative approach to support the Thirst Project’s mission of constructing a freshwater well in Uganda. They organized cooking classes featuring a variety of authentic dishes, with each class admission priced at $25 for two individuals. Through their dedicated efforts, they successfully generated more than $6000 within just five months, demonstrating the power of innovative fundraising for vital causes.
Raised Money for Ekal Vidyalaya
Ekal Vidyalaya is an organization on a mission to bring basic education to every child across rural India. Shivi baked chocolate lava cakes for Tabla Indian Restaurant and donated the profits to Ekal Vidyalaya. Furthermore, to create awareness for raising money for Ekal, Shivi, and Scott Joseph collaborated together to teach how to make handmade chicken curry and rice.
Charity for Faine House Residents to provide Sustainable Garden
Shivi was motivated to support the Faine House after learning about it from her mother. A transitional living facility called The Faine House helps young adults who leave group homes and foster care in their move to independence. In order to give the residents of Faine House a healthy diet and a relaxing activity to help them relax, she is collaborating with Feed Hunger Now to develop a sustainable garden.
