Community Spotlight

Lotus Cuisine of India

Lotus is a family-owned, North Indian restaurant that specializes in using the finest ingredients possible…local, organic and fresh! They offer many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free choices on their menu as well as long-time favorites like chicken tikka-masala. Surinder (Pal) Sroa, who owns Lotus with his wife Linda, is generous, warm, and welcoming, and has always lived by the principle of giving back to his community. Pal is now providing us with food through our Planned Giving program: every other week, he cooks some extra meals for one of our recipients in the Canal. And they love them!

Rob has been volunteering for ExtraFood for a little over a year, with 47 trips so far. He shared a photo with us a few weeks ago of his truck loaded up with about 700 lbs of donated food. Wow! Rob brings lots of enthusiasm, and for some of our biggest food trips, too. We’re delighted to have him on the team!
