Sump Coffee

Sump Coffee is donating all drink sales on Juneteenth to the Equal Justice Initiative.

Juneteenth, celebrated every June 19, commemorates the freeing of enslaved Black people in the U.S., and amid the national unrest following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, many are looking to the holiday as an occasion to support and celebrate St. Louis' Black community. 

If you are looking to support a Black-owned cook, caterer or restaurant in St. Louis today, we have compiled a list of food businesses across the St. Louis metropolitan area that you can throw your money behind. 

Several other local businesses are dedicating part or all of their proceeds to assorted social organizations in celebration of Juneteenth.

Here are some of the places you can enjoy while also giving money to a good cause:
