about

Founded in 2020, Eat N' Talk Africa sprang from the realization that there is a lack of representation for African culinary heritage in the food and beverage industry. Our organization's purpose is to improve the racial and social relationship between local communities within the US by creating forums for education and intercultural exchanges on African culinary heritage to spark meaningful conversations about diversity and build equitable, and sustainable communities

Goals

Education
Our focus will be to shed light on the rich and diverse African culinary heritage and build awareness around the lack of diversity in menu offerings within the hospitality industry. 

Economic Development
