After this weekend’s tragic warehouse fire in Oakland that killed 36 people, the Bay Area’s hospitality industry is mourning alongside the rest of the creative community. To show their support for surviving victims and the local art scene, several restaurants and bars, such as Tartine, 4505 Meats, Itani Ramen, and more, are holding benefits for fire victims, through donated proceeds and supply drives.

Here is a rundown of how you can help, simply by patronizing local food businesses, whether it’s as easy as buying a beer or dropping off some toiletries. Comment below or email if you know of others, or if your business is getting involved, and we will update this post accordingly.

  • Encuentro (550 Second St,, Oakland) will be donating a portion of their profits until next Tuesday ( for friends, neighbors and loved ones affected by the Ghost Ship fire.
  • Scott’s (2 Broadway, Oakland) is giving all proceeds from its clam chowder to the Fire Relief Fund for Victims this Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11.
