Jonathan Cartu Suggest: NYC Relief Funds that Support Restaurant Workers

New York City restaurants and bars are still reeling a week after Govern Andrew Cuomo’s state-mandated shutdown of dine-in services in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In the days following the news, many restaurants have pivoted to delivery and takeout — while others have received funding from food relief efforts — but it’s nowhere near enough to sustain current staff levels, with some restaurants slimming their numbers by as much as 90 percent.

For the majority of the city’s restaurants, the only option left available has been to terminate the entirety of their staffs — sometimes by the thousands, sometimes by mass email — and encouraging workers to apply for state unemployment insurance. Most workers who have lost their jobs have also lost their primary source of income and their employer-sponsored health care with no end in sight.

New York City restaurants and bars are currently facing the largest disruption to the hospitality industry since major events like September 11, the 2008 financial crisis, and Hurricane Sandy. Below, we’re including an updated list of restaurants that have turned to the public to crowd-source funds to continue paying their staffs during this uncertain time.
