How the Service Industry Is Helping Each Other Right Now

How the Service Industry Is Helping Each Other Right Now

In this bonus episode, we're looking for the helpers in the restaurant world: those individuals who have taken it upon themselves to bolster their own communities during this unprecedented crisis -- and, we'll cover how you can help, too.  We're going to tell you where you can support undocumented workers who find themselves out of a job. We talk to the James Beard award-winning chef Abe Conlon and business partner Adrienne Lo on how their restaurant Fat Rice selflessly dedicated their food supply and talent to feeding service workers. We speak with a rum distiller in D.C. who pivoted from spirits to hand sanitizer, and a strip club owner [NSFW link!] in Portland who managed to keep his employees working with a... bold new idea. And, we speak with microbiologist Jason "the Germ Guy" Tetro on how to properly clean your takeout and delivery orders, and why he is still ordering delivery and takeout meals.  Links:  Win Son's Venmo: @win-son Proceeds go to undocumented workers who make out at least 20% of the restaurant industry.  Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation, an organization that’s using donations to directly support individual restaurant workers and restaurants in crisis.
