Columbus Urban League Young Professionals host first-ever Black Restaurant Week
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) —
Alissa Henry talked to Columbus Urban League Young Professional’s group board members Tiara and Toya about Columbus’s first-ever Black Restaurant Week.
This week, local minority restaurants will join together for the Columbus Urban League Young Professional’s inaugural Black Restaurant Week.
According to the organization, Black Restaurant Week is a time where Columbus can experience the wonderful variety that black-owned restaurants have to offer. Through this initiative, the Columbus Urban League Young Professionals (CULYP) hopes to educate, mobilize and empower the community at large about the importance of circulating their dollar in black owned/ minority businesses.
The ultimate goal of Black Restaurant Week is to make an investment back into the community by raising awareness about exceptional black owned businesses around Columbus and to drive financial support back to the CULYP’s affiliate, the Columbus Urban League. 10% of all sales from Black Restaurant Week will be donated to the Columbus Urban League to support their programming and efforts in empowering the community and change lives.
