📮 Join us tomorrow for a Free Pre-Midterms Breakfast

A note from Kelly:
Join us for a free pre-midterm Ballot Review Breakfast tomorrow in DTLA.

The midterm elections are just 19 days away and the results will be enormously important — both in shaping the future of this presidency, and also in shaping the American political landscape for the future.

And learn how you can host your own #VoteTogether party on Kitchen Table App to ensure you and your friends have a fun plan to get together and vote!

A note to our community,

First, thank you for being part of our very special community! Thank you to so many of you for downloading the app, creating a profile, hosting a meal, and booking your seat to join one.
 

Kitchen Table is about the joys that we experience when we come together and connect in person over our shared love of good food and great company.


You are part of our growing group of hosts and guests and friends and neighbors and newcomers and I want you to feel welcome, included, and appreciated. If there's something you'd like to see more of on the app, please hit reply and let me know! (I read all your notes.)

I always feel especially grateful this time of year and I want to take a quick moment to thank you for being a part of something new and special -- and for believing in the power of breaking bread with one another.

Looking forward to seeing you all around the table soon,
Kelly 


Have you met our Host, Meeti?

Meeti is hosting her 8th Kitchen Table, an authentic Indian meal to celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Lights.

If you're reading this on your iPhone, click her photo to save your seat to her November 9th celebration.
Don't miss out - Meeti's tables always fill up!

We asked Meeti:
What do you love about hosting?

"It gives me an opportunity to showcase my food and my culture with enthusiastic guests who want to know more and expand their palate. It is the passion for cooking I share through mother's recipes, and in a way, every meal is my tribute to her! 

I am thankful to Kitchen Table App for giving a platform to many home cooks and chefs like me to share our food."

Kitchen Table Spotlight:

Host Danielle invites you to her Breast Cancer fundraiser on October 14 in DTLA. Connect with friends and neighbors while making gift boxes to donate to survivors.
 

Making and donating Breast Cancer Survival Kits is so important to me because when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the doctor’s office gave me a bag of useless items, such as a mug, pencil, notepad and a stuffed animal. I was appalled at the lack of insight into a patients needs.

During the recovery of many surgeries, I put together a list of items that were very helpful and so I want to share this information with other patients in these survival kits.
