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.
The RWCF is working with another nonprofit partner that has existing technical and legal capacity to accept and review applications, and then quickly distribute funds. While that will take some time to work through, anyone can use the email address to express interest. RWCF is collecting that information and will both share it with the fund’s distribution partner, and loop back with those people to make sure they know how to formally apply.
