Shortly after the "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" order when into effect, Savor Seattle launched the Iconic Market Box to support Pike Place Market businesses while their doors were shut to foot traffic.
Now, the food tour company is doing something similar to support Black-owned businesses in the city.
"We have always been ambassadors of the Seattle small business food community," said Savor Seattle founder Angela Shen. "That community needs support now more than ever, so we have to be part of the solution. It’s a time to amplify with action, not just words."
The new Seattle Solidarity Box, launched Thursday (June 4), will feature items from 11 Black-owned businesses in the area. Savor Seattle said 100% of the profits from the first 100 boxes sold and $5 from every box after that will go toward Black Lives Matter Seattle-King County.
"We stand in solidarity for racial justice and equality," the announcement stated. "Join us in shining a light on talented small business artisans in our community."
All orders need to be placed by 5 p.m. Monday, June 8. Delivery is available on Thursday and Friday, June 11-12. Savor Seattle will offer additional delivery dates each week based on demand.
