For all of January + February, we will be donating a portion of profit to the James Beard Foundation-
Food and Beverage Industry Relief Fund for Black and Indigenous Americans
"To help create a more equitable industry for communities that are disproportionately impacted by systemic racism and in acknowledgment of the immeasurable contribution that these two communities have made to the modern American foodscape, the Foundation is launching The James Beard Foundation Food and Beverage Investment Fund for Black and Indigenous Americans to provide financial resources for food or beverage businesses that are majority-owned by Black or Indigenous individuals."
BIPOC in the United States face systemic barriers and racial inequities that prevent many from moving into positions of leadership and/or ownership in the food and beverage industry. America’s Black and Indigenous communities in particular have faced oppression for centuries, and were foundational groups upon which American systemic racism was designed. Through the processes of kidnapping, slavery, colonization, and mass genocide, these groups endured atrocities that resulted in systems designed to oppress them and eventually oppress all people of color. These systems became a part of the fabric of our country.
We are honored and stoked to be donating a portion of profits that help BIPOC food + bev businesses make it through these tough times and have continued support for the future.resources: https://www.jamesbeard.org/investment-fund
