The restaurant has received a wave of responses, especially from young families.

It is challenging other Edmontonians to donate what they can this season too.

“We just want to give back to the people that we feel like need it the most, just give them a little break on the groceries,” said Maya Paramitha of Padmanadi.

“A little help really goes a long way. Support the Food Bank so that they can help more families in need."

The restaurant has received requests for help from as far away as Beaumont and Leduc.
