This unique event was created specifically to introduce to the Black community the momentous efforts of individuals, business, and organizations that are daily excelling within the culinary industry. We believe in some way the community is not well informed or aware of the many facets this industry provides and how much involved those like us are. The Black Culinary Expo was created to not only showcase these individuals, businesses, and organizations but also provide an outlet where they can directly cater to their targeted market allowing, exposure, promotions and a growth in business and awareness. Most importantly, BLACK STREET wants to encourage future Caterers, Chefs, & culinary Entrepreneurs.
A portion of the proceeds will go to an organization that caters to ending hunger.
BLACK STREET will award three deserving students with a scholarship for the passion and drive for a culinary career that successfully submitted all materials in response to the scholarship contest. Winners will be chosen and announced by selected judges prior to the expo. The organization hopes to provide promising opportunities to future students, current chefs, and the creation of beneficial business relationships. Lastly, BLACK STREET will honor individuals who represent the essence of greatness within their businesses, the culinary industry, and most importantly—the Black Community.
