Black’s Market Table, a local restaurant in northwest Houston that serves farm-to-table American dishes with a contemporary twist, gave back to the community with a donation of $25, 000 to Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM).
Following Hurricane Harvey, which produced massive flooding and widespread destruction throughout the Houston area in late August, Black’s Market Table, spared from storm damage, announced it would donate 20 percent of its September proceeds to NAM to help its less fortunate neighbors.
Many in the northwest Houston community impacted by Hurricane Harvey have turned to NAM to help them recover. The restaurant’s donation will help support NAM’s programs and services, all of which are essential in sustaining long-term recovery.
With a goal of creating a true community vibe in his restaurant through use of fresh, local products and providing a homey, casual atmosphere, it is not surprising that restaurant owner, Bart Black, would find a way to get involved in helping the community recover from disaster.
“All of us at NAM are grateful to Black’s Market Table for their generous support,” said Brian Carr, NAM’s Chief Advancement Officer. “Community partners like Black’s are a great example of Neighbors Helping Neighbors.”
Northwest Assistance Ministries is a non-profit, community-based social service agency that strives to meet basic human needs through Neighbors Helping Neighbors. NAM provides assistance in areas such as food, shelter, health, education and domestic violence awareness and intervention. During its last fiscal year, NAM touched the lives of more than 129,898 people through its many programs and services.
