We’re in this together, and we need your help to get the word out—so workers in need know they can turn to us, and so we can increase our impact in the community.


Staff education is the best way for us to continually make sure that restaurants and workers are aware of our services. We want them to know how to refer friends in need or come to us directly when a hardship hits.

Contact us to schedule a brief presentation at your next staff meeting or to receive a GK toolkit for your team. You can also download and print our posters or “Be a Pal” cards to help spread the word.

Talking Points

Most of what you or your team needs to know about the Giving Kitchen is right here on our website, including our online grant application.

The short story is: if you are a restaurant worker in the Metro Atlanta area (including Athens, Columbus and Rome) who is experiencing a hardship due to an unexpected illness, injury, death or natural disaster, the Giving Kitchen is here for you. You may qualify for a Direct Grant to cover living expenses during your time of need. You may qualify for a Matching Grant to match funds raised by your restaurant friends. Or you may benefit from our SafetyNet resources to assist you with related services.
