Never have we seen a crisis so devastate our business, and never have we seen so many rally together to help however we can.
This episode of the Restaurant RockStars Podcast is all about an initiative to help those industry workers most affected. I’m speaking with Sean Weissbart, a NYC attorney specializing in setting up tax-exempt non-profit organizations. He has teamed up with Danny Meyer of Union Square Hospitality Group, Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller to create a 501 (3C) company raising funds for those in our business who need it most – our front line employees.
We’ll talk about:
– the initial goals and framework for this charity
– the obstacles and how they were navigated
– who it will benefit and how
– tax benefits and IRS exemptions
– differences and overlap with the Paycheck Protection Program
and how this initiative can inspire any of us to create something similar or assist our industry in another way. We’re all affected by Covid-19, but the bright light is that through collective strength and willingness to lend a hand, good work continues to come to our industry.
Our business is based on passion, commitment, fortitude and shared strength. Sean’s passion also shines through his work with Ment’or, an organization inspiring and helping those culinarians who aspire to become leading future chefs.
Together we can and will make a difference.
