A Fund Helping Struggling and Out-Of-Work Restaurant Workers

We can do better than $600

Featured Campaign

We are here to help

Restaurants in the U.S. are in an "economic free fall" amid the ongoing spike in coronavirus cases and the forced shutdowns, with almost 20% of dining establishments around the country having closed permanently since the start of the pandemic. This has left thousands of restaurant workers struggling to survive, many unable to pay even the most basic bills and put food on the table. In the absence of any substantial government relief and a gridlock in state unemployment agencies, it is incumbent on us within the community to help one another.

All of the funds raised will be re-distributed directly to restaurant workers, via checks and electronic platforms, who have either lost their job or are in need of a small leg-up to cover rent payments, medical bills, childcare or any other day-to-day help.

A backend admin team of volunteers will double-check and confirm references, precious employers and more to ensure the process is honest and transparent.
