In the midst of the ongoing public health crisis, the hospitality industry has shuttered, reopened, redesigned, rebuilt, and pivoted in every way imaginable. With the Parlor Community Bake Sale, we call on our community to help support the baristas, servers, porters, managers, line cooks, and other members of the restaurant community who are still struggling to find work.
For the first four Sundays in May, we’ll be hosting over twenty of NYC’s best bakers at our roastery to raise funds for the Service Workers Coalition, a mutual aid fund and now nonprofit that has provided weekly grocery stipends to service workers affected by the pandemic. We invite you to join us in celebrating the NYC restaurant community’s relentless ingenuity and perseverance the best way we know how: with exceptional pastries and freshly brewed coffee!
How it works
- Order your pastry box and specially priced coffee below during the pre-sale windows. Pastry boxes will include an assortment of pastries from that week's featured bakers (5 pastries total).
- Pickup your order the following weekend (on the scheduled Sunday) at the Parlor roastery.
- Enjoy your treats!
A few more details
Our Bake Sale hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We are located at 11 Vanderbilt Ave, at the edge of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Pre-orders are the best way to ensure you get all five pastries, discounted boxes of Parlor Coffee, and make your donation count!
A very limited amount of baked goods from the week's bakers will be available on a first come, first served basis, priced at $5 each.
Free filter coffee will be available for all service workers during the Bake Sale, no questions asked!
Our weekend Canteen will be open as usual from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., serving filter coffee and espresso drinks. Outdoor seating, good tunes, and positive vibes will be in abundance!
About Service Workers Coalition
AD, Seamus Branch, Kelly Sullivan
Service Workers Coalition is a mutual aid fund and now non-profit that has provided weekly grocery stipends to service workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through grants, partnerships with organizations like IOBY, and direct donations they have raised and redistributed over $250,000 in funds and have prioritized undocumented workers who have been excluded from state and federal aid.
As restaurant workers themselves, the founding team sought to be the first link of a safety net that would do something the service industry had rarely done before: support and encourage workers to prioritize the needs of their bodies, safety, and family. We at Parlor are moved by their mutual aid approach and their commitment to our industry as whole.
