There’s a lot to love about Choolaah’s flavor-packed masala and responsibly-sourced eats served up in a hurry. Though, there’s more to your favorite Indian BBQ spot than tandoor-fired naan.
Sure, Choolaah serves good-for-you, freshly-made food, but they’re also committed to spreading the love outside their four walls by making their impact felt in the community.
Choolaah loves bringing people together and they’re not shy about rolling up their sleeves to build community. You only need to look at their countless easy-to-host fundraisers, volunteering, and event-driven programming to see that their impact goes well beyond their open kitchen.
However, it’s not just a front to push paneer, it’s in their roots. In ancient Northern India, families and friends would gather around a “sanja chulha” — essentially, a big community oven to share warmth and stories. A modernized “Choolaah” is a fresh take on this timeless experience of sitting, sharing, and savoring good company and good food, every day.
Since their opening, they’ve been very active in partnering with worthy causes. Earlier this year, Choolaah’s eatery in Fairfax’s Mosaic District hosted “Food for a Cause”, where 30% of every meal sold was donated to local organization Life With Cancer. Meanwhile, their Sterling spot did the same thing with Loudoun non-profit Mobile Hope.
Getting the neighborhood moving
Choolaah knows that what you put in your body is only half of the healthy living equation, too. That’s why their dedication to a healthy lifestyle doesn’t stop with their menu.
Over the summer, Choolaah in Sterling partnered with Samskara Yoga Healing to get the city sweating. Not only did the Yoga on the Plaza community yoga class at Cascade Overlook Town Center include a refreshing outdoor flow, but Choolaah also collected pet food and supply donations for our furry friends in need.
Whether we’re talking about food, fitness or philanthropy, Choolaah gives everything they’re involved in 100%, and we’ve got a feeling this is just the jumping-off point.
A healthy helping
If the heart shown by Choolaah doesn’t encourage you to share good vibes and good food, we don’t know what will. Stay tuned for more community workouts and fundraisers throughout the year.
Oh, and if you need to cater your next fundraiser, gala, business meeting, or even tailgate, look no further than their line of bowls and by-the-pound BBQ. You’re bound to gather a crowd.
