#BlackFoodEnergy Restaurant Grant

Black Opportunity Fund (BOF) aims to help dismantle the impacts of systemic anti-Black racism by allocating resources to community organizations which undertake initiatives that impact the quality of life in Canada’s Black communities.

Last September, BOF partnered with DoorDash to launch #BlackFoodEnergy – an extension of the DoorDash Entrepreneurship & Access Program – to celebrate and support Black-owned restaurants across Canada, and today, we’re very excited to announce the 13 grant recipients have been chosen.
