Karma Kitchen for International Day of Happiness

  • Karma Kitchen by Service Space at The Canvas Cafe
Monday 20 Mar 2017 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm

To celebrate UN International Day of Happiness, The Canvas Cafe and Service Space are partnering for the second time to host Karma Kitchen, a unique pay-it-forward restaurant concept grounded in generousity, sharing and compassion.

Karma Kitchen is one of those beautiful spaces where the lines between giving and receiving get blurred, until it becomes difficult to decipher who is giving and who is receiving.

Imagine a restaurant where there are no prices on the menu and where the check reads £0.00 with only this footnote: "Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you. To keep the chain of gifts alive, we invite you to pay it forward for those who dine after you."

That's Karma Kitchen, a volunteer-driven experiment in generosity.

On the evening of March 20th, you're all invited to join in at Karma Kitchen at The Canvas Cafe and you can choose here below how you'd like to get involved.

Join the Volunteer Crew - You're invited to join a spirited crew of 12 volunteers to host the Karma Kitchen pop-up by serving in a variety of roles from serving tables to plating food to washing dishes and more!  If you'd like to volunteer from 5pm-10:30pm on March 20th, please submit your email address using this link.


Make a Dinner Reservation for 6pm-7:45pm: The first sitting will be from 6pm and we invite you and your friends/loved ones to come along and experience generosity on the menu!  Submit one email address per person to make dining reservations for the first sitting at 6pm using this link.


Make a Dinner Reservation for 8pm-9:45pm: The second sitting will be from 8pm and we invite you and your friends/loved ones to come along and experience generosity on the menu!  Submit one email address per person to make dining reservations for the second sitting at 8pm using this link.
