Off Their Plate, a volunteer-run non-profit aimed at providing COVID-19 relief, is hosting a panel discussion on “Black Folx in Food” to help shed light on the experience of being Black and working in the restaurant industry.
Ebony Dowtin Harris (general manager of Doi Moi in Washington, D.C.), Keith Corbin (executive chef of Alta Adams in Los Angeles), Elijah Bah (founder and operator of Nurish in New York City), and others will discuss the various challenges Black entrepreneurs face in the food service industry.
