Cook with us
During Black History Month, we heard directly from chefs as they explored themes of Black culture and identity and shared their stories of what food means for them, their families, and their communities. Our cooking classes and demos directly supported Black entrepreneurs and owners who have grown their food businesses at Hot Bread Kitchen.

“Black History Month represents a freedom to work in food, but not in the context of servitude.”

Black History Month at Hot Bread Kitchen
February is Black History Month in the U.S., traditionally a time to acknowledge the central role of Black people and African-Americans in the nation’s history. In 2021, this month means a few different things to us at Hot Bread Kitchen: it is a moment to celebrate the beauty and complexity of Black culture and identity; to reflect on the multitude of Black experiences in this country and across the globe; and to reground ourselves as we continue our work to promote equity and economic opportunity for communities of color. Black History Month is also a unique opportunity to acknowledge and amplify the voices of our community, particularly our workforce members and food entrepreneurs who identify as Black or African-Americans, whose products encompass and share the culinary diversity of the African diaspora.
