Cookie Grab

Thank You! Together, The Culinary Ladies Collective 2021 Cookie Grab raised over $34,000 for local bakers and Harambee Village Doulas!

Through the Cookie Grab fundraiser, our network of female chefs, cooks, food and beverage producers and artisans, raises funds for local organizations that elevate and empower women, focusing in particular on women’s health issues.

Once again we will be selling boxes filled with cookies baked by our members as well as the Just Bakery mentorship program. Each box will contain 21 unique cookies, baked by Madison-area bakers, and will be available Thursday, February 11th and Friday, February 12th. 

This year’s fundraiser will donate proceeds to Harambee Village, a collective of birth professionals who support women and families with a specific aim to dismantle disparities of race, class, gender and sexuality that lead to negative birth experiences, especially for women of color, women with economic barriers, survivors of trauma, immigrant women, queer and transgender people.

Past Success

The cookie grab is a grassroots movement to reclaim womxn’s strength and value in the public sphere. We like to think of it as “Grab them by the cookie,” and then putting the proceeds where they belong, in organizations working for and led by womxn.

The Culinary Ladies Collective has donated over $60,000 to Planned Parenthood since launching the Cookie Grab fundraiser in 2018.

This year’s fundraiser will donate proceeds to Harambee Village, a collective of birth professionals who support women and families with a specific aim to dismantle disparities of race, class, gender and sexuality that lead to negative birth experiences, especially for women of color, women with economic barriers, survivors of trauma, immigrant women, queer and transgender people.

This Year

Cookie box orders will include options for home delivery or to select a pick-up time slot to limit person-to-person contacts. Boxes cannot be shipped.

You will also have the option to add-on a “Brewer’s Choice” 4-pack of Giant Jones Beer, selected to pair with the cookies in your box! Cookies boxes + beer will be picked up at Giant Jones.

Every box will contain the same 21 cookies.
