This local relief fund is providing grants to Miami restaurant workers in need
By Virginia Gil | March 23 2020
It’s no secret that the hospitality industry has been the hardest hit during the Covid-19 pandemic. And as many takeout and delivery meals as we commit ourselves to ordering, that’s simply not enough to save South Florida’s restaurant community.
There’s more to be done. Felix Bendersky of F+B Hospitality Brokerage is leading the charge with a Miami Restaurant Relief Fund on gofundme.com. The goal is to raise money to put toward $250 grants for folks affected by the crisis—from bussers to servers to hosts whose hours have been cut, who’ve lost their jobs or are no longer able to make a living wage. As long as money is being donated, the fund will remain open to provide as many grants as possible.
