The vegetarian nepalize food is resteurant quality. The singing, druming, and interaction between volenteers and eaters creates the atmosphere of a mellow party. Althogh here is no official security, the calm energy keeps conflicts to a minumum.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been both volenteer and client, and felt that I benefited greatly in both roles. When I was depressed, it helped me feel better about myself to serve. Other times, I just ate. In both cases, I enjoyed the music and the socializing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it larger.

Homelessness, hunger and poverty.

This group can't solve those problems, but it's a good start.

curry without worry, to me, was an embodiment of our potential to collectively accomplish great things within out communities. Amidst a world of animosity and profit-based thought, it is a reassuring thing to be involved in a community project that feeds bodies and souls solely to do just that.I volunteered in the kitchen for ten sucessive weeks, and I know that I will return as soon as I can. Also, Curry Without Worry is responsibly devoid of unnecessary costs and beaurocracies, donors can be sure that their money is going directly towards the food we buy.

The amazing thing about CWOW is that it is much more than a 'soup kitchen' experience. The difference lies in the food, and the people who serve it. The food that is served in very healthy, freshly made, often from Organic, and sometimes local ingredients. The food is then served amongst dancing, drumming, and the true warm Nepali spirit. It is a joining of Eastern and Western cultures, and always proves to be a rewarding experience. I hope you can make it someday!

I am one of the volunteer who helps to cook, serve and clean dishes. I have been helping the organization for more then 2 years and I am very happy to say the experience has been awesome. Whether it is in kitchen or in civic center serving food, the vibe is always positive... people are always smiling and enjoying. Shrawan Nepali is always there with his madal(nepali drum) and his song to uplift the spirit even in the glummest weather. The group that makes the cwow happen are so amazing that every time I have friends and families visiting city, I make a point to bring them to civic center to experience cwow. I am proud to say all of them returned with a smile on their face.

Curry Without Worry is an amazing organization that does a great service for the city of San Francisco. They bring not only nourishment in the form of a 5 course Nepalese meal, but a boost of morale and spirit to the hundreds of people they feed every Tuesday at the San Francisco Civic Center. The city is lucky to have such a great group of people giving back to the Community. Also, Shrawan the founder is an absolute rock star.

Curry without Worry provides holistic Nepolese nourishment. My son Jack has shared with me stories of meals to hungry guests in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It is more than food for the body, it is food for the soul. We all have more in common than we have as differences. Eating is a communal way to equalize relationships and begin anew. Thanks Curry without Worry!

I had the pleasure of experiencing CWOW while visiting my good friend, Emily Daggett, in San Francisco last winter. She is dedicated to volunteering every Tuesday night, and it was a joy to share in both the preparation and delivery of the meal to the community. Even though it was cold and raining, volunteers had a smile on their face, and pleasantly served each community member who came to enjoy the meal. I hope to have the chance to serve with CWOW again!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, enthusiastic and heartfelt towards what they were doing and whom they were serving. Volunteers and staff are extremely dedicated, not missing one CWOW evening yet. Also very respectful and sincere towards all community members who participate.

An organization full of people who want to not only feed people, but connect people in a personal way. I was lucky to attend an event and volunteer one evening, and both times I felt like I got more than I gave.

I am impressed with the level of compassion and dedication to serve demonstrated by the founder and long-time volunteers. They haven't missed a Tuesday in 3 years and the consistent presence of Curry Without Worry truly is a god-send for many of the clients. Though there are many organizations feeding the homeless and low income in San Francisco, CWOW believes that the disadvantaged communities need more than just a hot meal. Music, song and recognizing the humanity of each guest is at the forefront of the service.

More feedback...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open up branches of Curry Without Worry worldwide, create jobs for students and the unemployed serving meals, spreading awareness, and offering other services. They would also open a Community Center or several to serve meals all day, every day.
