We wouldn’t be the Pantry without our community – our friends and neighbors who help fill our table with food, love, and good conversation. Because the Pantry’s mission overlaps with so many great organizations, we want to share the many ways we connect and give back.

As a small business, we aim to support local makers in the greater Seattle area, and are proud to work with folks who contribute to the betterment of our larger community. Whether collecting honey from our favorite local pollinators or seeding oysters in our salty PNW waters, we are honored to share our kitchen with friends like:

Alvarez Farm
Ayako and Family
Boldly Grown Farms
Collins Family Orchards
Drifters Fish

The Pantry is more than just a cooking school – we are a gathering place that is passionate about supporting, serving, and strengthening our larger local and national community. We believe that together we can do better, so our work stretches beyond our table, where we aim to help combat important, foundational inequities in our society. Many of these inequities, it turns out, are visible in the world of food – from the way our dietary options are dictated, to the way poverty and neglect can influence the health of an entire community. In an effort to outreach our arms in support, we donate a portion of our revenue to local and national organizations rooted in education, political engagement, or economic and social justice.

Each month we donate to an ever-changing group of organizations that currently includes:

American Civil Liberties Union
Coyote Central
El Centro de la Raza
Equal Justice Initiative
Higher Heights for America
Jubilee Women's Center
National Coalition on Black Civic Partnership
Public Schools across Washington State
Solid Ground
Southern Rural Black Women’s Initiative
United Negro College Fund

Each quarter, we turn one of our monthly family dinners into a fundraiser that benefits a local nonprofit to further their mission. We are always seeking new, powerful, organizations to connect with, so please let us know if you have an idea! We are, after all, building this community together. Some past fundraiser beneficiaries include:

The Block Project
City Fruit
Creative Justice
Eat with Muslims
El Centro de la Raza
PCC Farmland Trust
Rainier Valley Food Bank
Refugees Northwest
