Supporting the Community

The foundation of the Black Restaurant Week model is supporting culinary endeavors. This year we are partnering with F.A.R.M.S. and Black People Eats to support their efforts to help farmers and restaurants in need.

Black Farmer Emergency Fund

Family Agriculture Resource Management Services is a regional 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to providing legal and technical services to farmers of color in an effort to prevent the loss of landownership to build generational wealth and eradicate hunger in the farmers community.

The F.A.R.M.S. Emergency Fund provides funds to small farmers (no more than 500 acre farm) for payments of utility, medical, farm labour, equipment repair, or the purchase of seed if suffered recent crop loss.

Black Restaurant Emergency Fund

Black People Eats and Black Restaurant Week is partnering to provide black-owned restaurants much needed relief to assist with recovery efforts.

There are many restaurants that are facing challenges from COVID-19 and damages from the recent acts of riots and looting. The Black Restaurant Relief fund was launched to help support restaurants nationwide that have been impacted. Our goal is to raise funds to provide restaurants $500 each to assist with business repair, employee salaries, or cover the cost for any damages to their business.
