Eat, Drink & Be Generous
Rebuilding community through good food and generosity.
Working together to rebuild community through good food and generosity.
Good food + good company + giving to great causes = That’s United Way of King County’s Eat, Drink & Be Generous event series for you!
While we put together this series to support our vulnerable neighbors and lift up our local restaurants during the COVID-19 crisis, it continues to bring our community together while cooking and eating amazing food and raising critical dollars for our neighbors in need.
Why attend an Eat, Drink & Be Generous event?
- Learn from some of Seattle’s most sought-after BIPOC chefs as they teach you how to toss up their signature dishes and drinks (that is sure to be a conversation piece at your next dinner party)
- Find out about the issues our neighbors are facing
- Generously raise money to support our community
It’s what we like to call a win-win.
All dollars raised from ticket prices and donations will support our community by fighting homelessness, helping students graduate and ensuring that all families are financially stable—all with a delicious plate and drink in hand.
Thanks in advance for joining us at the table!

Together with our donors and partners, we’re working every day to rebuild our community in Seattle and King County in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. This is a great opportunity to help our most vulnerable neighbors get back on their feet while also lifting up our local restaurants.
Thank you to our current Eat, Drink & Be Generous sponsors:
What are your COVID protocols for in-person events?
- All guests are required to show proof of vaccination along with a valid photo ID
- All guests are required wear a mask while not sitting in a seat or actively eating and drinking

How will the virtual events work?
After registering, we’ll reach out to you with details about the menu, where and when to pick up your meal kit if applicable. Close to the event, we’ll send you the secure Zoom link.
What accessibility accommodations are available during these events?
United Way is committed to making all of our events as accessible as possible. We will have live captioning available at all virtual events and ASL is available upon request. When you register, you’ll have an opportunity to indicate any accommodations you need.
Please note that a minimum of two weeks’ notice is necessary to arrange some accessibility needs. If you have any questions, please reach out to email@example.com.
What’s in a meal kit?
Meal kits serve two adults. We do our best to accommodate some dietary needs (e.g., vegetarian), though this may vary by event. Every meal kit will be different depending on the featured Chef and restaurant. Kits will come with the ingredients you need, and the Chef will show you how to prepare your meal during the virtual event.
If I’m unable to pick up my meal kit, can I get a refund?
Registrations aren’t refundable but are definitely transferable! If something comes up, we encourage you to share your ticket(s) with someone who you really like. It’s going to be a fun event—and is a great opportunity to get to know more about United Way and support local restaurants.
