How Ohio is helping affected businesses:
Gov. DeWine and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted announced programs aimed at assisting small business owners and employees affected by Ohio’s bar and restaurant closures. They include a one-time liquor buyback to support bars and restaurants (many of which were stocking up for St. Patrick’s Day), enhanced unemployment aid for Ohioans and low-interest loans for small businesses and nonprofit organizations.
How you can help support restaurants, bars and others in our community:
Several foodservice industry veterans have launched a new nonprofit venture called Service! Relief for Hospitality Workers, which seeks to feed unemployed workers in the industry and families in Franklin County. Service! is a collaboration between The Table’s Sangeeta Lakhani and Muse Hospitality’s Matthew Heaggans, Letha Pugh, Catie Randazzo and Reed Woogerd. (Preston’s: A Burger Joint and Ambrose and Eve are part of the Muse restaurant group.) The venture’s goal is to provide 2,000 meals a week for displaced workers. Visit servicerelief.org for more information and to donate.
