Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by Irma these past few days. We’ve already been hearing from restaurants and individuals in the Georgia restaurant community who have suffered damages. We know that restaurant workers are often among those hit hardest by natural disasters – both in sheer number (since the hospitality industry employs so many) and in severity of impact – and TGK has always provided disaster relief for Atlanta metro area restaurant workers facing a financial crisis due to flood, fire, or wind damage. Our coverage area now spans 40 counties surrounding Atlanta. Due to the size and nature of Irma’s path through the state, we are assessing our ability to provide additional relief to restaurant workers in need. Please stay tuned for an update later this week.
In the meantime, if you are in need or know someone in need who might qualify for our existing grants programs, please apply online at https://thegivingkitchen.fluidreview.com/ or call us with any questions.
