Help Silver Spoon Catering defeat Covid!!

Greetings from Vidya, Chef and Owner of Silver Spoon Gourmet Catering

My family and I have been offering our culinary creations for over 20 years. It has been an enormously challenging and fulfilling journey. We take pride in using the freshest ingredients to cook from scratch for every catering order and for our takeout days. We are a “family to family” business. However Silver Spoon is more than just a business for us, it is how we contribute to the larger community as a part of the tapestry of South Asian art and culture.

Silver Spoon has become a precious haven for healthy, wholesome and sustainably sourced food through our catering services and weekly Take-outs. Silver Spoon has been innovative and visionary in that we incorporate Quinoa, Brown rice, oats and other nutritionally relevant greens and millets into traditional Indian food. We shop weekly at our local Sunnyvale and Cupertino farmers markets and buy our produce through organic farms whenever possible. It has been such a privilege to cook for hundreds of weddings, birthdays, graduations and house-warming ceremonies over the decades. We strive to help non-profits whenever possible with our food donations.

Most of you may have heard that most food establishments (small businesses) will not survive this pandemic. Due to Coronavirus and shelter in place, all our corporate and wedding catering orders have ceased since March 2020. We have been offering Takeout, however it is not bringing sufficient revenue to compensate for overhead costs of keeping the business open., Our cash reserves have dwindled drastically each month for the last five months. However, we do not want to close our doors. We are doing everything we can to generate other sources of income. Last week, as we kept re-doing our company accounts multiple times, we humbly realized that we need to ask you for help if we are to remain open.   

Funds contributed by you would be used immediately for rent, employee paychecks, insurance, utilities, supplies, and business upkeep expenses. We need funds till the end of this year, as by January of 2021 we are very optimistic that our marketing efforts will bear fruit(to allow for more Takeout orders) and event caterings will increase over the coming months. 

Any contributions, however large or small would be deeply appreciated. Even if you can’t contribute, please do consider leaving a comment and sharing this campaign. You can also help us, by ordering takeout food on:

We so deeply appreciate your generosity. 
May all beings know the joy of giving, 
May all beings know the joy of receiving. 
Through giving, one truly receives
Through receiving, one truly gives. 
So be it. So be it. So it is.

Best regards and be well, 
Vidya and family
