Funding Friday: The Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation Relief Fund

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that when this is all over, I
can’t wait to go to my favorite restaurants and enjoy their
hospitality and food. If they are able to re-open.

While many industries are facing difficult times in this crisis,
the restaurant and hospitality industry is particularly hard
hit.

So for today’s funding friday, I am encouraging everyone to do
what I did this morning –
make a donation to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation
Relief Fund
.

So far, the RWCF has raised close to $100,000 for this relief
fund. I hope they can raise a lot more. The funds will go to these
three areas:

50% FOR IMMEDIATE, DIRECT CRISIS RELIEF ASSISTANCE TO
INDIVIDUAL RESTAURANT WORKERS
.

25% FOR NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS SERVING RESTAURANT
WORKERS IN CRISIS.

25% FOR ZERO-INTEREST LOANS FOR RESTAURANTS TO GET BACK
UP AND RUNNING.

There are more details on the RWCF relief fund
here
.

Again, if you’d like to make a donation,
go here
.

Also, if this is a sector you care about, you might want to
subscribe to Some Meals
Considered
, a newsletter written by our daughter. She has been
covering the challenges facing the restaurant industry almost daily
this week and is surfacing a lot of useful and helpful
information.
