Without Black support, Black restaurants may disappear permanently. KJ Kearney couldn’t live with that thought so on April 5 he launched Black Food Fridays. The strategy is simple: on Fridays order from a Black owned restaurant and post about it using the hashtag #BlackFoodFridays. There is no better way to go into the weekend than supporting a Black restaurant and with the launch of this movement, you can do so with millions of your friends.

The purpose of #BlackFoodFridays is to support Black restaurants by encouraging all members of the community to order from a Black Owned restaurant on Fridays. • During this pandemic, all businesses are suffering. But this will disproportionately affect Black business as, according to research from the U. S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency, minority-owned businesses are more likely to be denied the credit needed to rebuild. Those that are funded will have to borrow lower amounts while also being subjected to higher interest rates. Many more will refuse to apply for loans for fear that their applications will be denied. • If you do decide to support a Black Owned restaurant on Friday, or any other day of the week, we ask that you share a photo of your meal on social media, use the hashtag #BlackFoodFridays, and tag us so that we can help spread the word on which of our businesses are open for takeout or delivery. • With sincere thanks, KJ Kearney (@kjbeenya). ✊🏾✊✊🏽✊🏻✊🏿 • If you know of a Black restaurant that we should showcase, please send us a message. Our DMs are wide open and looking for suggestions. • #BlackOwned #BlackRestaurants #vegan #vegetarians #food #foodporn #foodie #foodstagram #foodgasm #foodblogger #foodpics #foodphotography #foodlover #foodpic #foodies #foods #foodgram #foodlovers #foodphoto #foodstyling #foodshare #foodlove #foodiegram #foodoftheday #foodforthought #foodcoma #foodaddict #ujamaa

In a perfect world, everyone would order from Black restaurants seven days a week. In this new, quarantined reality, however, money is tight. Even so, many individuals and families still desire a good restaurant meal once or twice a week. In that case, set aside each Friday for Black Food Fridays. Not only will this campaign provide a boost in business for Black restaurants, using the hashtags and promoting on social media will provide much needed marketing for entrepreneurs who don’t have much cash for promotion, these days. Black Food Fridays is a way to not only get full on great food but in doing so, collectively bolster the soul of Black Wall Street: the restaurants we all love so much.

Black Food Fridays is a mere one week old but already, its impact is being felt. People have been sharing the hashtag, posting and gearing up for this coming Friday. Black Food Fridays is also accepting submissions via direct message to the their Instagram account, @blackfoodfridays. The health and survival of Black owned restaurants is purely in our hands. Black Food Fridays is the sort of campaign that we can all take part in and have a great time doing so: supporting Black owned businesses doesn’t have to be a chore, it can be downright tasty!
