This year has been challenging for black-owned businesses in the DMV and many black restaurants and other food service providers closed, laid off employees and are still struggling to keep their businesses due to COVID-19 restrictions. Therefore, DMV Black Restaurant Week 2020 is about RECOVERY. The purpose of DMV Black Restaurant Week is not only to promote black-owned food businesses in the DMV but also to EDUCATE owners and professionals and create opportunities for them to learn how to grow and thrive.

The virtual conference is planned for five days, November 10th – 14th, and will bring together government agencies, private companies and nonprofits to spark innovation and to provide strategies to black-owned food businesses. All business types in the industry are invited to include hospitality, app creators, food bloggers and writers, chefs, cafes, tea and spice curators, food trucks, farmers, caterers – everyone – from all around the District, Maryland and Virginia.
