You're Invited: Join Us for a Digital Dinner Party Benefiting Nourish!

You'll likely recall Michaela Ayers from our interview with her last fall. She is the founder of Nourish, a social impact organization that is focused on bringing DEI solutions to communities to "inspire action towards a more equitable future." 

We are thrilled to be partnering with her for a Digital Dinner Party on May 13! In Michaela's own words:   

"In an increasingly polarized society, people are afraid to have real conversations. We are trapped in a binary of thought, especially when it comes to confronting racism. You are either good or bad, right or wrong. I wanted to create a middle ground. It got me thinking—what are the places where people connect? What do we share? What are the essential moments that bring us together? And I realized that it's food. In my own life, the moments where I felt most seen, connected, and heard have been around a dinner table."

With that in mind, let’s take anti-racism beyond social media platforms and book clubs, and into your day-to-day practice. It’s time to get comfortable being uncomfortable (and eat tasty food while you're at it).

"What are we? Are we monkeys filled with art and chaos? Why are we like this? Why do I care so much about what happens to us if nothing lasts and impermanence is the only truth?"

"Set a humble table and eat beautiful simple food. Nothing has to be fancy. When you make yourself comfortable, your guests will feel comfortable."

The Nourish Digital Dinner Party is a community event designed to support individuals of all backgrounds who are committed to anti-racism and don’t want to do it alone. Through interactive and intimate conversations, dinner guests will walk away with mindsets and strategies that translate anti-racist values into everyday actions.

Not in the mood to cook? We got you! We’ve partnered with some amazing local to Seattle businesses to provide dinner boxes for donors. All proceeds will be donated to the Nourish community fundraiser.

Our curated dinner boxes are available at the Treat Yo' Self + The WORKS ticket levels. Minimal food preparation will be required at home. Currently offered for our hometown Seattle pick-up only!

Please check out the event page purchase tickets (starting at $25), view menu options and learn how you can further support the work of this necessary organization.  

Many thanks to our event sponsors for providing delicious food and drink for our guests!
