With the challenges of running a business operation, we cannot always plan for the unexpected. Many women in the fields of food, fine beverage, hospitality, and farming incur unexpected business expenses to tackle repairs and invest in technological advancements, equipment, and other needs to take care of their operations. Les Dames d’Escoffier will award cash micro-grants, designed to assist grantees when they face a business challenge. Funds can be used to pay bills, recreate website/online presence, purchase needed equipment, tackle repairs, get training---whatever is needed to help support and sustain.
Deadline to submit application is July 31, 2022. Recipients will be notified by August 15, 2022.
