CLEVELAND — Monday marks the start of Black History Month, and to celebrate, the Cleveland Browns have launched a new initiative aimed at supporting local Black-owned restaurants while helping provide food to those in need.

As part of the new initiative, called “Cleveland Huddle,” the Browns are partnering with three local restaurants—GoodfellasBBQ in Cleveland Heights, Soul Fo’ Real in Strongsville and Sauce the City in Ohio City—to hold meal distributions to local nonprofits throughout the month of February.

During the month, the Browns and restaurant partners will package hundreds of individual meals that will be distributed to organizations such as Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries, The City Mission’s Men’s Shelter and Laura’s Home Women’s Crisis Center.

Browns fans can support the initiative as well by visiting GoodfellasBBQ, Soul Fo’ Real and Sauce the City, as well as any of the Cleveland Black-owned businesses listed on the team’s website.

Also this month, the Browns are hosting a panel event at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse with the Cavaliers and the Indians as part of the Cleveland 3-Team Alliance to create meaningful conversations between the Cleveland Division of Police and Cleveland Youth.
