Bridging the Divide Through People’s Stomachs
We need you to help fill people’s bellies with some luv’n because you know, you can not have a lot of hate in you, when you have a belly full of food made with love. Nothing says that better than lumpia (Philippines), baozi (Chinese), dukbokki (Korean), takoyaki (Japanese), to a lot more from around the world because this is not just an Asian thing.
We want to turn the *3,800 incidents of anti-Asian racist incidents into a win-win opportunity
We want to be on the ground in these walking communities where these incidents took place because we believe that is how you connect with a community.
Providing support for communities hit hard by the pandemic is our primary goal, We trust that the simple gesture of sharing a satisfying, no-cost meal will bring communities together.
A good dumpling has that power. And then some. #dumplingpower
Our first planned event will take place in New York City with events throughout New York. Our goal is to kick things off in late July or early August 2021.
Spreading goodwill is at the heart of what we are doing.
Pay it Forward
Not only do we want to feed the community, but we are also committed to doing whatever we can to assist the entire food/restaurant community. We intend on doing that through our ‘pay it forward’ approach; the Law of Abundance exists in word and deed, and we believe that supporting others is a consistent ‘win-win.’
