SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY
PREVIOUS SUPPORT TO THE COMMUNITIES
Daksha is a most kind most generous person. From the start of this crisis in March 2020 she formed the Community Response Kitchen cooking meals for us without a mumur as our numbers grew now to over 550 a week. We could not have fed needy families cooked food without her. Not only does she cook but when she can she sends produce for our food aid bags. We have never met in person but I know how loving and caring she is through the taste of her food. Brent, with one of the highest death rates in the UK from Covid 19 virus, has benefited tremendously from the Community Response Kitchen. We must all pull together to ensure its important future in Brent.

"Community Response Kitchen have been a great asset to my patients during the Covid-19 lockdown. They have provided daily free hot meal provisions to several of mine and my colleagues patients. I am very grateful for their continued support and helping local residents in accessing their most basic needs and human rights. I hope Community Response Kitchen gets all the praises it deserves and continues being a pivotal source of support for the wider community"

Awesome work by CSK in supporting the needy by helping them with food. Please keep up the good work :)
As a doctor who used to work in the NHS, during my long days and nights, I used to long for something tasty to eat to keep me going during those gruelling times but really struggled to find food - especially at odd hours. So believe me, the food you cook will literally be life-saving. Thankyou so much for setting this up. Absolutely wonderful.
Compassion is part of being human

SIDDHANT'S DAY AT THE CRK
ADD A TESTIMONIAL
How Did We Do?
Hi Daksha, in my way to a much needed holiday and wrapping few things up. I'm sure you have been inundated with congrats but I wanted to personally add my humble ones and just say that from the first day back at the beginning of the lockdown, when I came to drop few tins of tomatoes to your place in Stonebridge, I have been in awe of both your warmth and boundless generosity and of the organisation of your operation. Knowing this has sprang from nothing, I was taken aback when entering a huge hall organised with Swiss precision and filled with over-pouring love. I was struck by the white of the gowns and the equipment in contrast to the colourful foods. I was greeted with warmth and left with a box of fragrant gulab jamun for my son. Since then I always referred to your place as 'Daksha's love lab'. For all these, my heart sang when seeing you have been properly recognised! Keep going, giving and inspiring! Much love
Julia (from MAFW)
