During the early months of the coronavirus quarantine, Shared Plates contributed to Eating Our Feelings, a zine about food and drink in the time of COVID-19.
Lizzy Johnston, Linda McNeil, and Austin L. Ray collaborated to put together a zine full of local artists and creatives, with 100% of the proceeds going to The Giving Kitchen in Atlanta, GA.
In the end, the zine sold out all 500 copies and raised $7,000 for The Giving Kitchen (and our graphic was even seen in The Takeout!). The final product was beautifully printed by Risolve Studio and it is full of beautiful and snarky illustrations, quotes, poems, and photographs.
We felt the need to bring some levity into a few heavy months, so we brainstormed home cooking ideas for our piece. Because everyone was cooking from home, we decided to put together a simple decision tree to help answer that eternally pressing question: how should I cook my eggs?
We’re so grateful to have been a part of this project. Thank you to the organizers, printers, creatives, zine purchasers, and to the folks in the restaurant industry in Atlanta who deserve all the support in the world.
