Many of us are looking for ways to support the movement happening around the country. And it’s difficult - paralyzing, even - to know what to do. But one thing has become abundantly clear: We need to better support the Black community. Not just this weekend, or “until all of this is over.” Always.

One way to show solidarity is to support Black-owned food trucks. In a time when it’s already incredibly difficult for businesses to stay afloat, it’s more important than ever to show up for the people and places that continue to feed us. We’ll be updating this list constantly, so email us at losangeles@theinfatuation.com to let us know which trucks should be included, and we’ll work on adding them as quickly as possible.

We’ve also compiled lists of more than 300 Black-Owned Restaurants In LA, and LA Restaurants Supporting The Black Community.

Please also consider donating to organizations fighting for racial justice - like the ACLU, NAACP, Know Your Rights Camp, Black Visions Collective, and Reclaim The Block. For a longer list of organizations to support, click here.
