It’s hard to drive through the Seattle metropolitan area without noticing the homeless issue that is plaguing our area. Regardless of your moral feelings surrounding homeless people, we can all agree that something needs to be done. Colorado’s cannabis industry has just pledged three-million dollars to fight their states homelessness problem, and many are hoping Washington does something similar. While Washington works on a real solution, some businesses have taken it upon themselves to help in small ways. The Conscious Eater is one of these businesses.
Conscious Eatery is a sandwich shop nestled in Seattle’s industrial district between Sodo and Georgetown. Conscious Eatery has donated over 7000 meals to homeless patrons since they opened up in 2016. They started as a simple catering service, but jumped into the restaurant business after just five months of steady business. On top of donating an average of 547 meals every month, they partner with non-profits like Mary’s Place, White Center Food Bank, and Roots Young Adult Shelter.
Conscious Eatery makes sure their food stands on its own, sourced from Seattle sources. Their ingredients come from three main sources, Charlie’s Produce, Grand Central Bakery, and Mac Donald Meat Co. This cuts transport time down from hours to minutes and ensures all of the food is as fresh as possible when its prepared for customers.
“Roasting all meats, mixing all dressings and sauces, pressing our own juices, and constructing all soups from scratch- we refuse to take the easy way to ensure all of our food is delicious and made with love.”
Their menu is highlighted by their artisan sandwiches. The Cuban sandwich is one I’ve had personally and it’s incredible. It’s simple, but the flavors all elevate one another into a visceral flavor experience. This beast of a wich features pulled pork and pork shoulder, swiss cheese, pickles with a whole grain mustard that was fantastic. I don’t even like mustard, plain yellow mustard is a vile substance, but this stuff added tangy warmth that balanced out the salty savory nature of the pork. They also feature a breakfast menu, salads, and can cater for events.
