Let’s all come together to show support for the Black and Hispanic community. If you’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity, you must be at this event. The minority community has not been given as much attention as they are supposed to be given. There are so many talented Black and Hispanic people who need an opportunity to show the world their cooking skills, for instance (some even own restaurants), or other businesses.
PepsiCo has taken this upon themselves to create an initiative to oversee their Racial Equity Journey. It is targeted at the minority group, Black and Hispanic business owners precisely. Another of this Racial Equity Journey is the Dig In plan channeled to change the restaurant industry. Starting a restaurant is quite demanding then, coupled with the fact of being a Black or Hispanic is double the initial challenges. It doesn’t only hinder the starting process but stunts the growth process.
Among the plans to support the system set up by PepsiCo is the Washingtonian’s Food for Thought Festival. The program is intended to bring people, and attendees, to explore the Black and Hispanic-owned restaurants from DMV. It is promised to be fun and cocktails filled.
The event is strictly open to 21 years and above. It is slated to be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, from 6pm to 9pm. Its location is at Hill Center at Old Naval Hospital at 921 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington, DC 20003.
The ticket to this event is sold as follows: General Admission and VIP Admission at $65 and $75 respectively.
