Earlier this year, we closed our doors after a difficult couple of years. In February, we reopened with an investor, hopeful for what the future might bring. Then COVID struck.
Last night, we received the unbelievable news that we are the recipients of the Discover #EatItForward prize meant to support Black-Owned Restaurants through the uncertainty of COVID. We are still in shock.
THANK YOU for your nominations and votes. THANK YOU to Discover for this gift. This prize gives us a degree of stability in an extraordinarily uncertain time. This gift allows us to be able to continue to be a resource & refuge to the people in our community - and to continue donating meals to those who need it most through our #FeedThePeople program.
I've always strived to be a beacon through positive energy and straight-up hard work - and it's hard to put into words how much it means to have that recognized and to be supported in this way. Discover - THANK YOU for supporting Black-Owned Businesses in this incredible way. You're truly changing lives.
