Ward 4 is proud to be the home base of DC’s vibrant Caribbean-American community. All throughout June we are celebrating National Caribbean-American Heritage Month and reflecting on the Caribbean-American community’s profound contributions to Ward 4, the District, and the United States. One way to support our Caribbean-American community is to participate in Caribbean-American Restaurant Week on June 12-18! Visit one of Ward 4’s many Caribbean restaurants to support the businesses that preserve Caribbean cuisine and history, provide valuable jobs and entrepreneurship, and serve as a hub for community living.
Don’t just visit one Caribbean restaurant; visit several to complete a Ward 4 Caribbean Restaurant Bingo Card! We have bingo cards available for each birth month:
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December. And if you feel inclined, tag my social media account (@CMLewisGeorgeW4) with photos from your visit or takeout meal so we can promote it for more neighbors to see. For a deeper dive on Caribbean cuisine across DC, check out this great resource from NCAFFA, the Caribbean Foodways Alliance.
