Employees Only—Free Staff Meals for the Industry

Employees Only has always been a place for our industry to be treated like family. That’s why Employees Only Los Angeles has been providing a free "Staff Meal” for our Los Angeles community, where many have lost their entire industry. And we’re looking for donations to help keep our doors open and continue serving those neighbors and colleagues who need it.


Since March 20, we’ve been offering 100 first-come, first-serve meals (limit 2 per person) every day between 5pm-8pm at our WeHo location. To feed those workers hit hard during this trying time and provide healthy and comforting meals, we’ve been giving anyone with ID and proof of their recent employment at a restaurant, bar, hotel, or hospital (limit 2 per person).


But the only way we can keep feeding our community is through the generosity of others. With a goal of $7,000 per week, we can make a difference in the lives of those unsure of what the future holds. And show solidarity with our neighbors as we get through this together.


Any amount, no matter how small, will make a huge impact on our business and keep us able to continue to feed those in need. And all proceeds go directly to our staff and costs to serve these meals and keep the lights on. Otherwise we too will have to close our doors, and, like many others, will likely not be able to reopen whenever that may be permitted again. 

In addition, if you can provide healthful ingredients such as rice, chickpeas, lettuces, vegetables, herbs, responsibly raised meats, or other healthful goods with a good shelf life, please email brian [at] employeesonlyla [dot] com.

Thank you. We hope to see you on the other side of this.
