Hawaii Food & Wine Festival (HFWF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is launching a Kokua Restaurant Workers' Fund to provide immediate support to restaurant and bar workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in Hawaii. One hundred percent of ALL funds generated from the campaign will be used to buy meals for restaurant workers.
Workers will receive financial assistance of $250 that will be provided in the form of a Visa card, restricted for meal purchases at local restaurants. We hope this will help both our restaurant and bar workers with meals for their families, while also helping to keep our restaurants open during this pandemic.
Individuals workers laid-off from a Hawaii restaurant or bar will need to apply for the assistance on the HFWF site and the card will be issued via U.S. mail to them.
Please make note, if you make a donation to the Kokua Restaurant Workers' Fund on GoFundMe Charity, your credit card charge will be displayed as “PAYPAL *PPGF GFM”
