Tony Archuleta-Perkins, left, president of the Golden Gate Business Association board of directors, presented a check for $5,000 to representatives from the Park Cafe Group, which includes four casual neighborhood cafes (Dolores Park Cafe, Precita Park Cafe, Duboce Park Cafe, and Paradise Park Cafe). GGBA, the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and Grubhub honored 15 local culinary establishments — LGBTQ+ and allied-owned — with grants during a September 14 reception at the Wells Fargo Community Center on Market Street. The Community Impact Grant Program, funded by the Grubhub Community Fund, is meant to strengthen the local food industry and $80,000 in total was distributed. Others who received checks included Manny's cafe, Hot Cookie, Super Juiced, and Noble Folk Inc.
