Giving Kitchen provides emergency assistance grants to food service workers in need of emergency assistance.
Our Crisis Grant program currently helps food service workers in Georgia. Direct grants are awarded based on financial need and a set of criteria according to the crisis.
Most often, our financial assistance covers the cost of rent and utilities paid directly to the service provider(s). Applications are reviewed by Giving Kitchen staff and a review committee made up of GK board members.
Food service workers can apply for assistance up to six months after a crisis occurs. Once we receive a completed application and employment verification, the average time to process the application is one week.
Please note: we do not pay medical expenses.
