Guinness Brewery has donated $1 million to help address food insecurities in Black neighborhoods; train people of color in the tourism and travel industry; provide increased access to the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, and a number of other efforts to support the Black community in Baltimore.
Wednesday, the Halethorpe-based brewery announced the donations will support three key areas in the Baltimore region’s Black community including: community empowerment, economic justice and equal representation.
In June, the brewery announced the $1 million commitment. This week, Jennifer Holiday Hudson, a director at Diageo Beer Company, which oversees Guinness, detailed how that money would be distributed.
