Café Gratitude’s efforts to help RAWvolution include posting their support on their Facebook and Twitter pages, putting up posters in their restaurant, and donating the profits of every one of their bestselling “Gratitude” bowls that are purchased during the first week in March.

Rawvolution has been an integral part Of Santa Monica’s Main Street for seven years

“RAWvolution has been an integral part of Santa Monica’s Main Street for seven years,” said RAWvolution CEO Janabai Owens-Amsden. “We have focused on being a sustainable, healthy cafe espousing the highest integrity in both our commitment to our food and our business practices. As a green and independently run business, we can’t think of a better place to be. We love being part of the healthy living community on LA’s ‘Westside.’ During our fundraising campaign so far, we have had the gracious and generous support of like-minded businesses. These businesses clearly understand that being part of a thriving economic community benefits all of us and would prefer to help lift each other up. We are so thankful for the efforts of the team at Cafe Gratitude Venice, the owners and staff of Au Lac Raw in Fountain Valley, and also the owners of Beverly Hills Juice Company.”

Save Rawvolution!

The motivation behind Café Gratitude supporting Rawvolution is to keep the west side of LA thriving as a go to place to eat fresh and delectable raw and vegan food. The threatening of the loss of Rawvolution poses a risk for all establishments offering raw and vegan foods to customers in the LA area.

“When people refer to other vegan, organic, healthy restaurants they often see them as our competition,” said Ryland Engelhart, owner and general manager of Café Gratitude. “I am sharing another perspective that these businesses and people are our greatest allies. They are our community and are committed to the same intentions of health and sustainability for all life. There is strength in numbers, so we say the more the merrier when it comes to places to get delicious, organic food.”

By supporting their competition, Café Gratitude hopes to help all the restaurants like them stay open for years to come. Be sure to check out both of these healthy delicacies West LA is lucky to have, where you’re sure to find healthy choices you’ll be coming back for time and time again.
