Barcode Employee Relief Fund

Nearly every restaurant in Richmond, Virginia - and everywhere - has had to make the difficult decisions in the last couple of weeks because of the Covid-19 pandemic. We've all to send most of our staff home. Our cooks, barbacks and service staff have found themselves out of work for the foreseeable future until things can get back to normal in a post pandemic world. 
While we're trying to adapt and create new ways to exist for the time being, we would like to be able to help our staff members that could use the assistance for food, housing or other immediate expenses. 
Any donations will be distributed evenly to staff members who require help. Unemployment applications have begun mounting up and even with the stimulus that's slated to come in the next month, some folks are gonna have a hard time making rent and keeping food on the table.
We have been around for a really long time and we intend to be around a while longer. Any help that you can provide to the staff in this difficult time would be appreciated. We realize this is a tough time for everyone. We miss you guys and can't wait to get back to business.
