The third annual DMV Black Restaurant Week, aimed at increasing awareness of local Black-owned restaurants and food service providers, will be held from Sunday, Nov. 8 through Sunday, Nov. 15.

With this year’s theme being “The Power of Collaboration: Recovery in the Midst of COVID-19,” the weeklong event’s co-founders Dr. Erinn Tucker, Furard “Chef Tate” Tate and Andra “AJ” Johnson have also planned a virtual conference from Nov. 10-14 that will bring together government agencies, private companies and nonprofits to spark innovation and to provide strategies to Black-owned food businesses.

“Collaboration is needed more now than ever before to enhance recovery efforts from the effects of COVID-19,” Tucker said in a press release. “We’re thankful to our sponsors and partners who have made food businesses’ participation and conference attendance free, removing barriers to owners who need critical information to create sustainable business models to include collaborations that make sense for the communities they serve and for their business goals and growth.”
