June is Pride Month, and this year marks the 52nd anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. To recognize those who have protested and continue to protest for equal rights, we’ve rounded up all the food and drink brands (and restaurants) that are giving back to the LGBTQIA+ community and supporting its many vital organizations this month. If you want to truly show up for the LGBTQIA+ community, you should give your business to queer-owned brands and donate to LGBTQIA+ organizations year-round, but here are ten pretty tasty ways to start supporting.
1. Baked by Melissa
The mini cupcake connoisseur’s Pride Collection features rainbow bite-sized cupcakes and is available for nationwide shipping. Ten percent of net proceeds from the cupcakes will be donated to The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in NYC. bakedbymelissa.com
2. Barefoot Wine
Barefoot is donating $1 (and up to $100,000 total) from each case sold of its new Barefoot Bubbly Sweet Rosé (decked out in the transgender Pride flag and rainbow Pride flag) to both the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and Free Mom Hugs (FMH). barefootwine.com
The Colorado-based snack bar company is using its new ‘Pride’ Lemon Poppyseed Oat Bar ($14.94 for a six-pack) to both showcase art from LGBTQ artists on the wrapper, and to raise funds for Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) and The Center on Colfax, which supports the Colorado LGBTQIA+ community. One hundred percent of sales will go to the two organizations. eatbobos.com
