Heinz and The Lee Initiative are teaming up to support black-owned restaurants. The Lee Initiative will be working with  Southern Restaurants for Racial Justice, a coalition of bakers, Chefs, makers and restaurant owners joined together to do the work to benefit Black communities, to provide grants to Black-owned businesses across the country. Through generous support from the community and our partners at HEINZ, we are thrilled to announce that we’ll be offering grants in the amount of $15,000 to $25,000 to Black-owned food businesses, both existing and startups. In addition to the monetary awards, this year’s grants for new Black-owned food businesses will include a continuing education component for grantees with seminars featuring food-industry veterans. The seminars will include timely and relevant topics such as commercial leases, small business accounting, and employee training and retention.
