At F+B Hospitality Brokerage we quickly recognized our clients, their employees and really the entire Miami hospitality community were suddenly facing difficult times, and as a result of Covid-19 related closings thousands were left with no income. We reached out to see how we could best support the local restaurant industry and as a result decided to launch the Miami Restaurant Employee Relief Fund in order to create some immediate relief for as many people as we could.
Together with the insights of notable Miami-area chefs led by Brad Kilgore of Kilgore Culinary and joined by Michael Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine, Michelle Bernstein of La Trova and Michael Beltran of Ariete we are raising awareness and funds to provide grants to out-of-work restaurant workers in Miami-Dade County who are dependent on hourly wages (plus many who rely on tips) to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families.
Provide $250 grants to as many qualifying grantees as possible
*100% of donations (less GoFundMe standard fees) going directly to those affected.
We are asking for those who are able, to consider making a donation to support the thousands of individuals and families that need financial help during this time.
Help us Help Others by making a donation today! As funds come in, they are being dispersed to those in need as quickly as possible.
