About Feed the Malik

Feed the Malik is dedicated to creating a platform which uplifts marginalized voices in food and provides support to independent food busines owners. 

Your membership will support that work and other projects such as:

  • Directly supporting marginalized business owners through various efforts such as offering free services, volunteering for community initiatives, and taking on unpaid projects for organizations working with food business owners. 
  • Creating original guides to the best Black-owned restaurants in DC, MD, and VA. Black-owned restaurants are consistently excluded from restaurant guides and listicles, making it hard for tourists and newcomers to find out about them. 
  • Dedicated writing and advocacy on issues of equity in the DMV food scene. The stories of Black restaurateurs, BIPOC food folks, and independent businesses are important. 
  • Highlight independent restaurants in the DMV. I deliberately purchase from and share about businesses throughout the region that have gotten little to no prior press coverage. Numerous businesses have told me how impactful these highlights are for their bottom lines.
  • Conscious and real business partnerships. Patreon ensures that I have the financial space to say no to paid partnerships that don't align with my work or values.
