It’s National Small Business Week – take a teeny tiny time out from supporting your favorite independent neighborhood spots and hop on a Zoom call to get up-to-speed with the Restaurant Revitalization Fund.
On Wednesday, September 15th the Independent Restaurant Coalition will be hosting a virtual rally with some culinary heavy-hitters — legendary chef and do-gooder Jose Andres (co-owner of ThinkFoodGroup and Founder of World Central Kitchen), Chef Sam Kass (President Obama’s Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition and partner at Acre VC), Nya Marshall (owner of IVY Kitchen); and Bessie King (co-founder of Mass Restaurant United).
Starting at 11:00am EST (8:00am if you’re on the West Coast), guests will give an update about the current state of affairs with the replenishment effort and talk about what needs to happen next to make sure it moves forward in Congress. The Fund has helped more than 100,000 operators get back on their feet post-pandemic but there are plenty who haven’t gotten what they need and with variants and winter on the horizon, the future is still pretty precarious.
Register online here to get in on the convo, get the tools you need to make a difference and get back to supporting your go-to local spots with your hard earned monies.
