Atlanta Restaurant Worker Relief Fund

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the restaurant industry. Many of us were already living paycheck-to-paycheck, hoping we could get enough hours or that the shift at the end of the month was busy enough to make rent. The almost complete shutdown of the industry has left us with little to nothing.

This fund is here to act as a reserve account to support restaurant workers trying to make rent, pay bills, buy groceries, and live our lives. This is a mutual aid effort by and for food service workers in Atlanta.  If you find joy in the Atlanta restaurant scene, please help us get through this tough time. Every little bit helps.

We recognize the valiant efforts of many groups around the city to help out affected restaurant workers. As such, this fund is here to make sure that members of our community who are most vulnerable and facing the most hardship can survive this crisis.

Thank you so much for anything you're able to provide! We’ll get through this together! Please feel free to contact us with any questions. **official stuff: This fundraiser is organized by Evan H., and Paul F; two restaurant workers in Atlanta, Georgia with Shift Change ATL. Funds are being raised directly for other food service workers through Venmo, CashApp, and PayPal. accounts as they are provided by those in need.
