We all know that the times ahead are becoming increasingly more uncertain. And that is beyond stressful. Plus, a lot of people have lost their jobs due to COVID-19. But, all is not lost and a lot of people are getting crafty. In fact, Salare is working to relieve some of that stress.

Salare is an American restaurant with influences of African and Caribbean cuisine located in Ravenna. Since they have closed like many other Seattle restaurants, they have decided to put their space to use. In fact, Salare is transforming itself into “a relief center for any restaurant worker who has been laid off or has had a significant reduction in hours and or pay”.

This transformation is possible through a partnership with the LEEInitiative, Chef Edward Lee and Makers Mark. Their combined efforts have allowed for the creation of hundreds of nightly to-go dinners. These dinners are for recently unemployed restaurant workers. However, they are offered on a first come first serve basis and are limited to 1 to a person.

Currently, the plan is to offer this program throughout the quarantine period or until it can no longer be financially supported. Similarly, donations like money, food, toiletries, and more will be accepted. So whether you are able to help or need to help, be sure to click the post above to learn more.
