Although we’re all hoping for better days where COVID is beyond us and we can go back to normal living – the hospitality industry is taking the hardest hit. This dramatic shift goes beyond just the food industry, hotels, vacation renting and travel are seeing the effects of the Coronavirus. But, how can the hospitality industry survive with such a downfall from COVID? Is it possible to bounce back?
Plate Online, an online foodie blog reported that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reflected a promising addition of 4.8 million jobs in June, but the unemployment rate remains at an astonishingly low 11.1 percent. As Arizona, California, and Florida are seen as the hot spots for cases and restaurant closure – these states have done their due diligence to provide resources to help hospitality workers in this time of need.
Similarly, to Caterina’s Club other nonprofits are doing what they can in this time of need to help citizens live a sustainable life with a pandemic amongst us:
Che Fico for Free Meal in California
Che Fico is providing free meals to families in need of a hot meal. When you go to their website they have a signup page so your free meal is an easy and seamless process. Book online now and have your order ready in 48 hours. With their online interface, they can help families throughout California order free meals from mobile or desktop.
California Restaurant Association Foundation
The California Restaurant Association Foundation created Restaurants Care, which can help hospitality and restaurant works cover any basic living expenses they may have.
Hospitality Resource to Help Find Jobs for Hospitality Workers
Another resource is larger than California, this goes away from the sunny state and helps nationwide hospitality workers connect them with jobs available while they wait for restaurants to open up again. Hospitality workers can stay true to their love of food and roots of customer service but migrate toward the grocery industry. This helpful online tool provides thousands of open positions around the world in need of people with hospitality experience.
