About

Long Beach Food & Beverage’s mission is to celebrate and empower the restaurant community through zero cost consulting, marketing, public relations, events and training, as well support other community non-profits and local elementary schools with donations of food, funding or time.

Founded in 2019, Long Beach Food & Beverage is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit designed to give our valued restaurants a trusted one-stop resource. We exist to support our restaurants’ unique interests and give back to the community at the same time. We also look to secure positive publicity for our restaurants to help make Long Beach a culinary destination like no other.

We celebrate and showcase our restaurants, pubs, breweries, bars and food companies through great annual events like Dine LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week, CANstruction Long Beach and Long Beach Beer Week, as well as other exciting events throughout the year. Our community includes restaurants of all sizes and profiles and we have a valuable network of resources to support them through all stages of growth.

As we help put “butts in seats” of our restaurants, we continue to give back to our community with events that support our non-profit partners. Please click on the individual causes on our website for info on how we support them.

We rely on donations, grants and partnerships to support our efforts and offset our hard costs. Thank you for your consideration.
