Support Black Owned Restaurants This Weekend... And Always!
The Midwest Black Restaurant Week is back! This time, of course, with an emphasis on take-out and delivery. Still with a celebration of the flavors of Black, African American, African, and Caribbean cuisines. Last year was the first year for Indy and the Midwest, but this time around see 11 different cities participating. The movement currently supports more than 500 minority businesses in the US.
Black Restaurant Week partners with local, black-owned restaurants and food trucks to offer menus showcasing each business’ unique culinary fare. Proceeds will benefit the heartland of the black culinary community: the farmers who supply the industry’s ingredients. The organization will donate vital funds to Family Agriculture Resource Management Services (F.A.R.M.S.) in support of its efforts to provide legal and technical services to farmers of color.
