Fortune: How big business can help local restaurants survive

Don and chef Marcus Samuelsson co-wrote an op-ed in Fortune calling on large companies to support local restaurants, as Audible has through Newark Working Kitchens. 

Our urban neighborhoods are landscapes of small shops and entrepreneurs. We fear lasting inequality and irreparable damage to these businesses and to the health and food needs of vulnerable citizens in cities across America. The $28.6 billion Restaurants Act in the American Rescue Plan offers hope, but our restaurants need more if they are to survive through the crisis. They need ongoing support from their communities—not just customers but, crucially, large local employers focusing their investment capacities beyond philanthropy.
