Event Description

Salare is a chef-driven neighborhood restaurant, nestled in the heart of Ravenna in North Seattle. We capture America’s diverse culture of food with influences from America’s South, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean Islands.

In partnership with @LEEInitiative and @chefedwardlee, Salare will be turning into a relief center for any restaurant worker who has been laid off or has had a significant reduction in hours and/ or pay, starting Monday March 23. With the help of @makersmark, we are offering help for those in dire need of food and supplies. Each night, we will pack hundreds of to go dinners that will be offered to recently unemployed restaurant workers. Dinners are offered on a first come first serve basis. Limit 1 to a person unless there is an emergency situation.

We will also have other supplies on hand for those in need, on a limited basis. We will continue to offer this program throughout the quarantine period or until we can no longer financially support the program.

We are accepting donations in the way of money, food, toiletries, and more. Please reach out to
