South London Edition
There are many ways in which we want to do more to continuously support the movement for social and economic justice going forward. In addition to everything else, (donating, protesting, educating and more), one straightforward way for us to help in our own communities is by committing to shift our spending towards more black and minority-owned businesses, now and always.
The hospitality industry has been hit hard by the effects of Covid-19 so we wanted tohighlight a few of many amazing black-owned, south-London restaurants that arecurrently open for takeaway (collection and/or delivery). This is by no means an exhaustive list but rather a start to our research and a chance to give our local favorites a shoutout so that others can enjoy their great food too!
