Black Restaurant Accelerator Grant Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many industries, but none have experienced more immediate effects than the food and beverage industry. Restaurants and foodservice businesses have especially faced challenges ranging from restrictions, employee safety and health, supply chain disruption, and more. That is why we are excited to announce the launch of the Restaurant Resilience program, a new program produced in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Atlanta.
