Stimulating the Atlanta Business Economy
Black Restaurant Week (BRW) creates an ‘awakening’ of economic empowerment to the black community through supporting restaurants and small businesses. According to Collective African American net income (spending power) now exceeds $1 trillion dollars annually. Through highlighting restaurants in our restaurant showcase, we are creating a cooperative economics system. BRW goal is recycle the dollar within the black community by working with a variety of black owned businesses throughout the two-week campaign.
Supporting those in Need
A portion of proceeds from the Black Restaurant Week Showcase will be donated to a local nonprofit organization. Atlanta Black Restaurant Week will support Family Agriculture Resource Management Service F.A.R.M.S. food bank program which purchases produce from small farmers to be donated to food banks, elder care centers, and shelters like the Metro Atlanta Taskforce for the Homeless. F.A.R.M.S. new partnership with the Metro Atlanta Taskforce supports Atlanta Urban Greens and the Taskforce effort to grow fresh produce on their rooftop garden which is later harvested for consumption in the shelter’s cafeteria. F.A.R.M.S. is supporting the shelter to cover the cost of seeds, fertilizer and supplies for the garden.
