The Black Lives Matter Movement is not just about standing by the Black community this week in light of recent events – it is an urgent reminder that White people and non-Black POC must actively support the Black community and fight systemic racism every single day. This involves not only becoming educated on matters of race, injustice, and inequality, but also buying from and supporting Black-owned businesses and restaurants.

The next time you’re deciding on a place to eat in NYC, we strongly encourage you to consider a Black-owned restaurant. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic still taking place, we’ve compiled a list of some restaurants that provide take-out options and are owned by Black individuals and families. If possible, please consider ordering directly from these locations and avoid using delivery apps like Postmates and GrubHub since they charge restaurant fees taken directly from the business owners and employees.

The EatOkra app is a great resource for finding Black-owned restaurants and food-trucks in many locations across the United States.
