Something tasty is always being served inside the kitchen at Cavany Foods on Grand Street in Jersey City. Owner and chef Alejandro Fummayor says he has a passion for cooking. “When I’m cooking it’s like another level. You forget everything. Stress is out,” Fummayor said. And now, with a new certification under his business belt, he’s hoping more people will be able to enjoy his food. His restaurant is the first business in the state to become certified as an LGBTQ+-owned business. The certification enables LGBTQ+-owned businesses to have greater funding opportunities, such as state contracts and grants.
