"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to sponsor couple meals through the hands of these 3 gentle souls. One of who we know personally and is very dear to us. It does take a village to make things happen and these girls make it seem simple.(I'm sure it's because of the help they get from their awesome parents) Many kudos to team Rainy Day Chefs and their parents! We as a family will continue to sponsor on a yearly basis for the month of Feb and September. Lots of love and cheer Rama, Goplas and Gnocci."

What a phenomenal trio! Rainy Day Chefs is such a wonderful venture. You girls are a great example of the spirit of giving to your community. Your commitment to this monthly project is impressive, since you all have busy schedules. Your meal plans are creative, and the pictures look awesome. I am enjoying the blog! The recipients of your delicious food must be happy and grateful for your efforts. Keep this up and each of you and Rainy Day Chefs will continue to blossom! Heather

I'm looking at your recipes and thinking I will try some as well. The world needs more people like you doing such nice things for others. You should all be extremely proud of yourselves."

"Excellent website. Good Recipes. And great work for the needy. Great going indeed. Amazing thought by such small kids"

"Dearest Creative Director, Executive Director and the Main Chef of RainyDayChefs, I happened to see your site and read all your blogs this afternoon and have to admit that I am super impressed with your thought of helping the needy and in implementing the plan so beautifully for the past few months :-). My initial thought was to join your team as another cook and get a fancy title of probably a 'Managing Director' to be part of this great cause but given my lack of cooking skills, geographical & age constraints I may not be able to do it. Hence would like to be at least a small part of this great initiative by 'Sponsoring a meal for one of the months'. The work you are doing is really commendable, mainly considering your ages. Keep up the good work and hope this grows into something really big. Loads of love and wishes to the three of you and god bless you !!!"

"Hi there Ria, Neha & Nitya!
I was contacted by Ria's mother & she shared the link to your blog! This is so wonderful & I'm very impressed with the great work you are doing in your community and in combining your talents/passions!
I was wondering if I could post this as a volunteer opportunity for other Overlake students to join you on your monthly cooking or deliveries to FOY!? We have a Service Opportunities page for US students (or any students for that matter) wanting to get involved with great causes. You could even make an announcement in January when we return to both MS & US on how they can get involved to support your cause!
In addition, I'm wondering if I may also share your story & blog along with our Communications team who are doing a write-up on students & alum engaged in Experiential Education and I think your combined forces would provide a lovely feature on how students can serve both in their leadership and their compassion to give back to their community. You three represent what we strive for at Overlake in Service Learning by taking your curiosity, compassion, talent, and time to make a difference in the lives of others in our world!
Let me know what you think! You have my full support & would love to find ways to help highlight your good work and also encourage more students to get involved in ways that fit their interests too!
Keep up the amazing work!"

“Thank you to RainyDayChefs!
RainyDayChefs generously donated a beautiful and delicious cake for our Spring Gala. It was one of the most sought-after desserts in our dessert dash. The chefs were very professional and provided great customer service on top of the delicious dessert. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
“You are awesome, Ria!
I was your server at Cantinetta restaurant on Saturday night. Your site is awesome and SO ARE YOU!!! I've subscribed to your blog. Can't wait to see what you girls will be doing and cooking!
