Chef Guy Fieri's launches relief fund for unemployed restaurant workers


Chef Guy Fieri is partnering with The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to raise money for a Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, which will benefit restaurant employees who have lost their jobs because of the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. The TV host is currently leading a fundraising drive where 100 percent of money raised will benefit workers who have lost their jobs. Starting April 2, restaurant workers in need can apply online for a one-time, $500 check that they can use toward housing, transportation, utilities, child-care, groceries, medical bills and/or student loans.

Impacted restaurant workers can apply for grants starting April 2. Those wishing to donate, or apply, can learn more at RERF.us
