Savor Seattle, a Pike Place food tour company that has since transitioned to locally-curated gift boxes during the pandemic, has been a key player in promoting social justice. This past June, they sold out of their collection supporting Black-owned restaurants and bakeries in Seattle. Twice. Then came a Hispanic Heritage Month box full of snacks and pastries from Hispanic and Latin-owned businesses, with proceeds benefiting Casa Latina.
Now, Savor Seattle is back with a brand new food and drink assortment in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - this time, supporting nine different businesses owned by women. Everything featured is on the sweet side, from RBG-decorated cakes from Cupcake Royale to apricot preserves from Girls Meets Dirt on Orcas Island. Each box will be delivered on October 7th, costs $99.99, and $5 for each order goes toward the ACLU.
Sure, we could convince you to buy this collection by talking about how refreshing a bottle of blood orange Rachel’s Ginger Beer tastes, or go over pairing ideas for a jar of Hot Cakes’ sea salt caramel sauce (we have many). But Savor Seattle Founder and CEO Angela Shen gives another reason, one that’s a call to action in response to RBG’s passing.
“After a year of fighting for our health, racial injustice, and small business vitality, a pillar in gender equality has left us too. While it doesn’t seem fair, we can all rise. Stand up for what you believe in. We can each do our part to honor her life’s work.”
