This native aid fund offers grants to needy restaurant employees in St John
It’s no secret that the hospitality industry was hardest hit during the Covid-19 pandemic. And as many takeaway and delivery meals as we commit to order, that’s just not enough to save the South Florida dining community.
There is still more to be done. Felix Bendersky of F + B Hospitality Brokerage is leading the indictment with a St John Restaurant Relief Fund on gofundme.com. The aim is to raise money for $ 250 in grants for people affected by the crisis – from buses to servers to hosts who have had their hours cut, who have lost their jobs or who are no longer able to earn a living wage. As long as money is donated, the fund remains open to provide as many grants as possible.
Would you like to apply for a scholarship? Fill out this form online and someone will get back to me. You must have worked in a St John-Dade County restaurant or bar for at least three months to qualify. You’ll also need to submit your last two pay slips.
If you’re interested in donating, just visit this link to send virtual money. Every dollar counts. A number of St John influencers like St John Food Porn and Chat Chow are doing their part with an Instagram challenge to encourage people to donate. When everyone donates to the fund, they marks friends for participation. They follow their directions when it comes to eating out in St John. Why not do the same for a donation?
