List of Resources for Hospitality Workers

by intelprise

There is no doubt that the drastic measures taken to control the spread of Covid-19 have caused great commotion within the community of the hospitality industry, leaving them unemployed until further notice and causing stress and anxiety about their fate. Some restaurants have been able to change their business models to accommodate the latest regulations, while others have organized complimentary meals for the industry community. In order to help as much as possible at this time, Jennifer Marrero, a board member of the USBG has shared a list of resources for Hospitality workers.
