Love going out to eat, but can't find an open restaurant or tavern?
As a local food and travel writer, producer of restaurant events, promoter and supporter of local independent restaurants, and major eater-outer, I'm extremely concerned about restaurant staff, many of whom rely on tips and live paycheck to paycheck, who have been or will be laid off shortly.
This is because COVID-19 virus mitigation efforts on the part of North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper mandated the closure of all restaurant and bar inside dining statewide, allowing only "to go" orders and curbside and third party delivery.
Restaurant owners are incredibly upset about this because they often view staff as family.
A board of industry professionals and others will determine who benefits from this fund. Recipients will be vetted thoroughly prior to receiving any funds, after providing their name and where they had been employed.
Money raised will be used in a few ways to help these folks make it through to the reopening of their restaurants. One way will be Grocery Gift Cards. Anyone receiving benefit from this fund will be thoroughly vetted after providing their name and where they had been employed.
We are so grateful for any contribution you can make. It will have a far-reaching ripple effect, helping more people than you can imagine.
