$25 Million In Relief Raised For Restaurant Workers Thanks To Guy Fieri

One of the country’s most well-known food show hosts has helped out restaurant workers to the tune of $25 million during the pandemic.

Fox 8 reports:

“Cook and Food Network star Guy Fieri helped to raise nearly $25 million for restaurant workers in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF), with Fieri’s help the organization was able to help more than 43,000 restaurant workers who suffered financially during the COVID-19 crisis.

The organization says that this would not have been possible without the generous support of over 15,000 individual donors and more than 50 companies and organizations.

‘Together, we raised more than $21.5 million for RERF and showed the nation just how important restaurant workers are to our industry and the communities where we work and live,’ the RERF wrote on their website.

CBS News reports that, in total, the fund raised close to $25 million.

In an interview with the news outlet, Fieri said the impacts of the pandemic had been difficult for him, however, he knew there were other industry members who were in far worse situations.”
