The Ferdinand Metz / American Culinary Federation (ACF) Relief Fund has been established to provide timely financial assistance to chefs, cooks, culinarians and foodservice workers across America, experiencing hardship in the wake of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
There are an estimated 15 million workers working in over a million restaurants and foodservice establishments. Many have already lost their jobs or have faced reduced hours due to this pandemic.
100% of the fund's proceeds will go to providing grants to foodservice workers. An applicant must be employed by a foodservice establishment in any segment: restaurant, country club, hospital, etc. Affiliation with ACF or ACFEF is not required as a condition of eligibility. These grants will be made on a first-come first served basis, subject to availability of funds.
We can make a difference in the lives of these workers. Please make a gift of support today.
