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 Chef Sajan, head chef of Tabla Indian Restaurant, started cooking classes to raise money. They provided classes on how to make different authentic dishes, and the ticket was $25 for two people per class. We raised over $5000 in the span of five months.
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, Chef Sajan, 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.
