Bistro Bis Employee Relief Fund, Washington, DC

Dear Customers and Friends,

The Bistro Bis staff is our family.  They are suffering through this COVID19 shutdown and any help you can give them would be so incredible.  Their need is immediate.  

Our goal is to collect funds over the next few weeks and distribute to our full and part time staff, many of whom have worked for us for over 15 years.  They will be able to use the money for food, rent, medicines or whatever they need.  

We have applied for all available grants and loans to help us recover and reopen when we are able, but don't know if or when the funds will available.  The money, while helping to get our employees back to work doesn't help the employees who are struggling now.  Please help!

We would be so grateful for any donation.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us through this campaign and we will contact you as soon as possible.  


Jeffrey and Sallie Buben
