The Community Kitchen Collective shares no cost, donation based meals throughout the South End in Seattle. Local restaurants serve meals to the public in a different neighborhood every day. Any donations go to food banks and a hospitality fund for displaced restaurant workers. Feel free to share with your networks, as well as anyone who may be struggling and can use a free meal.
Short Run Comix and Arts is the Northwest's primary showcase and outlet for comic artists, creators of limited run books, and small press publishers.
