Black Restaurant Week, LLC, an organization that celebrates African, African American and Caribbean cuisine through a series of cultural events, will host its second Indianapolis campaign from July 23 to Aug. 1. During this event, participating Black-owned restaurants will serve special prix fixe meals, which are several-course meals offered at a total fixed price.
Local restaurants participating are:
- The Missing Brick
- His Place Eatery
- Huge Impact Mobile Food Truck
- Yaso Jamaican Grill
- Black Bowe Bistro & Bakery
- Tea’s Me Indy
This 10-day event is a part of Black Restaurant Week’s No Crumb Left Behind campaign that provides marketing services to Black-owned businesses, which do not have as much access to business resources.
The systemic barriers for Black-owned business, such as disproportionate access to business loans, were only exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Black Restaurant Week press release. Events like Black Restaurant Week’s campaigns help to raise awareness for these businesses and goods and services they offer the community.
