Guy Fieri Is Helping To Launch A Relief Fund To Get Checks To Laid-Off Restaurant Workers

Beloved chef Guy Fieri is partnering with The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to raise money for a Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, which will benefit restaurant employees who have lost their jobs because of the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The TV host is currently leading a fundraising drive where 100 percent of money raised will benefit workers who have lost their jobs. Starting April 2, restaurant workers in need can apply online for a one-time, $500 check that they can use toward housing, transportation, utilities, child-care, groceries, medical bills and/or student loans.

You can donate to the fund here.

Guy said in a statement that he wanted to help raise money for the fund because of the passion and history he has with the restaurant industry. He said in the statement:

These grants will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to those who are eligible. Eligibility requirements include working on a part- or full-time basis in the restaurant industry for at least 90 days in the past year, having had a primary source of income in the restaurant industry for the last year, and experienced a decrease in wages or loss of job on or after March 10, 2020.

You can learn more and apply for a grant when applications open here. Again, you can donate to the fund here.
