Investment Fund Launches for Black and Indigenous-Owned Businesses
Open up the checkbooks.
The James Beard Foundation—which is famous for hosting awards centered around all things food—announced an investment fund exclusively for Black- and Indigenous-owned businesses in the food and beverage industry. Eligible businesses include restaurants, food trucks, caterers, pop-up supper clubs, and more.
The plan is for the fund to give out $15,000 grants across the country, and the application period is set to open later this year.
If you know folks who could benefit from this, spread the word. More information on the fund can be found on the foundation's website.
