3. 5th Independence Day Daawat
The Bombay Canteen in Mumbai is back with it's 5th Independence Day Daawat and yes it's as delicious and magnificent as it sounds! Every Independence Day since the past 4 years, the Bombay Canteen decided to hold a charity event where the guests can eat as much they want & pay whatever they like. In this community meal where you sit across other guests of the canteen and share the same table, an energized sense of freedom and positivity is woken in you. RSVP to the event to book your presence but an RSVP does not assure you a table. Guests will be seated on a first come first serve basis. Last year's Daawat raised 20.1 lakhs and fed over 773 of old and new guests of the Canteen and went on to help many children across the country with this generous revenue raised!
