Forge Team Relief Fund

The Forge Pizza in Jack London square opened 8 years ago, and has been slingin' delicious pizza ever since.  Our aim has always been to show people a good time and to make them feel at home with great service, killer food, and a waterfront view to boot.   Like many other small owner operated restaurants in the Bay Area, COVID-19 has hit us hard.  We've been put out of work.  We're hopeful that the restaurant will survive this, and look forward to seeing our guests.

On behalf of our hourly service staff, I've decided to create this gofundme with the hope that our community has something to offer.    If you've had the pleasure of joining us at Forge,  know that these are the people who made your experience possible! Donations will be evenly distributed to our servers.  No donation is too small.

Why donate to this group of knuckleheads? If it's not because you love one of us personally, or love our great pizza, it should be because we're a tight knit family that have each other's backs.
