Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation COVID-19 Crisis Relief Fund
As restaurants across the country cut hours, suspend business and close for good, many restaurant workers will be faced with long-term loss of income. For months to come, they will need help accessing government benefits and mental health services, paying their rent and feeding their families.
RWCF has established a Restaurant Workers COVID19 Crisis Relief Fund to:
Immediately direct money to organizations leading on-the-ground efforts in the restaurant community.
To bolster our impact investing budget to provide zero-interest loans to businesses to maintain payroll during closure or re-open once this crisis has passed.
To establish a relief fund for individual workers facing economic hardships or health crises as a direct result of COVID-19.
