In 2017 Happy Kids Center began serving weekly meals to the entire community of more than 80 children. These community meals ensure that all of our children are receiving regular, filling meals while uniting our community. Any leftovers each week are sent home to the families deemed most in need. The cost to sponsor one of these meals is just $100.
“Daal Baht Power, 24 Hour!”
At our typical meal day we serve daal baht, Nepal’s most notorious, traditional dish, cooked by our amazing Amas~ In most homes, daal baht is eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner and consists of daal, which is a simple lentil soup, and baht, which means rice. At HKC we go the extra mile providing additional dishes such as vegetable curry, pickled veggies, a protein based dish, and soon, eggs produced by our Happy Chicken Center Chickens!
For special occasions we serve Samay Baji, a famous, ethnic Newari dish reserved for festivals and religious or cultural pujas. The base of this dish is beaten rice, or chyura and comes with an assortment of special, usually spicy dishes that every child of Bhaktapur looks forward to!
