Tom Douglas cooking up salmon dinners in Ballard to raise money for Food Lifeline

Starting today and for the rest of the weekend, Tom Douglas will be selling grilled salmon dinners (to-go) in Ballard to raise money for Food Lifeline.

The “Grilling for Good” event will be at the Tom Douglas Co.’s Ballard Warehouse Kitchen and Rub with Love headquarters, located at the corner of 14th Ave NW and NW 52nd St (5118 14th Ave NW), just down from Stoup Brewing. They’ll be selling $20 salmon dinners in a coned-off drive-up area from noon to 5pm today, Saturday, and Sunday (March 20-22) will all proceeds going to Food Lifeline.

The menu includes wood-fired wild salmon, with Prosser Farm pickled peppers, Lola’s garlic fried smashed potatoes, and Jackie’s Greek salad.

For an extra $20, you can buy a bottle of 2018 Golden West Pinot Noir to pair with your salmon dinner. Both the food and wine proceeds go to Food Lifeline.

“The many restaurant workers who are unemployed are going to need our help,” Douglas wrote in a social media post about the event. “Food Lifeline is a first responder in times of crisis and need our dollars.”

And yet Douglas was one of the first to shut all his restaurants and lay off all his workers immediately, telling them all to go file for unemployment.

Thank God for him to do so, sooner the better for the workers to get unemployment before the rest of the country.

This is a great thing Tom Douglas is doing for the community. These are tough times for the restaurant business all around.

“These are tough times for the restaurant business all around.” What’s your point?
Life is a bitch for a lot of people.

Great if “My Ballard” could add an update. I heard the event was extremely successful in raising funds for Food Lifeline.
