Meatball Relief Fund

Yesterday, with a very heavy heart, our ownership team was forced to close one of our two locations and lay off 90% of our staff due to the effects of this virus that is ravaging our industry, our community and the entire world. Most of our servers and kitchen staff will undoubtedly struggle due to this lack of work. We have set up this fund because we want to be able to help them in any way that we can. We love our meatball family and we hate to know that many of them will struggle to buy food, pay their rent or pay their bills. Any donation that you make would be greatly appreciated by our entire meatball family. Many people have already reached out offering to help, so we set this fund up to concentrate our efforts in one place. It's truly amazing that during times of tragedy our community jumps to their call to action. We are so grateful for all of you and we can’t wait to rise out of the ashes together.

With Love,
Chef Mike and Team Polpettina
