WWBIC’s work is not solo – that is why we rely on all of our partners to help advance the important work of economic development. We are grateful for our recent partnership with The Kroger Co. Foundation and LISC (National and Regional), who teamed up with WWBIC to provide additional technical assistance to food-based business owners of color affected by the pandemic. Thanks to the generosity of Kroger and LISC, we are able to share a video featuring some stories of hope and opportunity directly from the clients to help “build it together.”
