Los Angeles restaurants have been struggling to survive since the beginning of the pandemic and women-owned businesses are being disproportionately affected. The National Bureau of Economic Research reported a 25% drop in the number of women business owners last year, a decline they classified as "unprecedented."
In response to this crisis, a group of women who own Los Angeles restaurant and hospitality businesses came together to form the charitable organization RE:Her. Its mission is to advance women in the industry and provide them with mentorship, grants, and resources.
To kick-off 2021, they've organized "10 Days RE:Her," their first virtual food festival which will include special take-out menus from over 100 restaurants across the city. Some exciting options on the east side include the "Cheeseboard for 2," a collaboration between Silverlake's All Day Baby and the celebrity-favorite Lady and Larder cheeseboard caterers, a tasting menu from the plant-based restaurant Jewel, and a virtual tasting and discussion with the women from Tsubaki in Echo Park.
For more information on the various options available on the east side and beyond, visit their events page.
