Here at Ladles and Linens, you may have noticed our slogan:
It's always a kitchen party, and everyone's invited!
And by everyone, we mean everyone. We know that with progress comes divisiveness. For some, old wounds have opened. Others feel that the world is going mad. When our communities hurt, we hurt. We are here to bring some positivity to these fraught times.
Businesses large and small have taken a hit due to COVID-19, but in solidarity with the black community, we are happy to share some black-owned businesses that you can support during these times. It helps to build strong families and strong communities. And for a number of factors, black communities have been disproportionately hit during these anxiety-ridden and economically-uncertain times.

Do your best to stay positive and remember to be kind. Remember, we are all in this together!
