Union Kitchen & Tap Encinitas Workers Relief

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we are amongst many within the restaurant and bar industry that never saw this was coming.  We slowly began losing one shift at a time to being shut down and shut out completely.  The Union staff have been faced with a financial unknown. This is being started by employees of Union Kitchen & Tap Encinitas which is part of a larger hospitality group within the San Diego area.    We are now out of work and faced with a financial future that is scary and unknown. 

With restaurants and bars being closed down in the blink of an eye, our sense of community and financial safety has been taken from us.   We find ourselves missing social interaction with our guests and with each other. This is an effort to help the staff of Union get back on their feet and survive for however long this will last without an income.  Sadly, we don't have the option of working at home and getting paid during these trying times. 

Encinitas, we are asking for your help to raise some funds to give us servers, bartenders, cooks, hosts, etc some relief in this trying time. Anything, literally ANYTHING will help if you have it.  We are all in this together and appreciate your support.  

Our thought is to raise as much as we can and to distribute the funds evenly in the easiest way
possible to those who need it the most.  Please spread the word & donate! No matter what, we will get through this together!
