Restaurant Worker Disaster Relief Fund Fund
About This Fund
Restaurant Opportunities Centers United is providing resources and financial assistance to restaurant workers impacted by the coronavirus crisis. We aim to raise at least $500,000.00 to provide emergency financial assistance to workers that have the highest unmet need. Any contribution, big or small, will help make a huge impact on restaurant workers' lives.
In this time of acute hardship, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United is requesting emergency financial support to establish this Restaurant Worker Disaster Relief Fund. With the dramatic increase in the number of restaurant closures, we are shifting our efforts to provide emergency relief to the millions of restaurant workers who we expect will lose their livelihood in the coming weeks.
