“This is a wonderful recognition,” Adrian Miller said. “I’m honored and grateful to be part of the team that made this podcast happen. I give a special shout out to Heinz, The Lee Initiative, and Southern Restaurants for Racial Justice for creating and coordinating the $1 million grant program that identified and benefited so many great Black-owned food businesses. They were great subjects for the podcast.”
