AUSTIN, Texas — Austin's "Black Food Week" is back again, giving black-owned restaurants across the Austin area a chance to shine as the spotlight is turned to them.

Sponsored by the Austin Justice Coalition, Black Food Week aims to give the Austin community information about Austin's new and longstanding black-owned restaurants that have become pillars in the Austin community.

This year, the event actually runs for two whole weeks, beginning on July 22 and lasting through Aug. 3.

"We hope that the community not only finds these restaurants as enjoyable dining experiences but also an educational tool that prompts supporting locally owned minority businesses," a spokesperson for the Austin Justice Coalition said. "Whether you decide to patronize the listed restaurants at any point during their hours of business or plan on joining us during the 'Eat and Greet' social hours, we hope you join us for a week that is sure to satisfy both your taste buds and your soul."
