Guy Fieri, host of The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” will lead a nationwide fund-raising drive for the recently established Restaurant Employee Relief Fund via a Restaurant Relief America campaign.
The (NRAEF) announced March 27 the creation of a Restaurant Employee Relief Fund to support U.S. restaurant workers financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. One hundred percent of all donations will go directly to restaurant workers in need. Starting April 2, impacted restaurant workers will be able to apply online for a one-time, $500 check to use towards housing, transportation, utilities, child-care, groceries, medical bills and/or student loans. These grants will be administered by the NRAEF and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on donating to RERF visit https://rerf.us/
Founding Partners of the fund include PepsiCo, Uber Eats, Constellation Brands, Moët Hennessy USA, Ecolab, Cargill, Boston Beer Company, Shift4 Payments, P&G Professional, The Elliot Group, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, and the Light Foundation.
