What We Do
Programs OverviewWe continuously develop programs and initiatives to assist businesses at every level.
Culinary Community Resources
Restaurant Business Development ProgramWe established a fund valued at $15,000, used for any culinary development support for businesses. These businesses understand and are committed to the economic growth in their communities. We selected 25 historical entrepreneurs in the food industry. We’re devoted to dismantling the long history of food injustice in providing resources, training services, and bridging communities together.
Project NXTThe 2021 ProjectNXT scholarship allows culinary businesses to thrive while impacting their communities’ next generation of economic growth. The scholarship applicants receive up to $5,000 in funding to enhance their culinary experience but obtain long-lasting knowledge on the importance of sustainable economic development in marginalized communities.
The Emergency Relief Assistance fund assists applicants that need access to resources to support their businesses. The goal is to ensure that each restaurant can thrive in a recession or disaster nationwide. The intention is to ensure that each restaurant business we work with has much-needed assistance towards their business development goals.
