TULSA, okla. – Relief is on the way for restaurant workers in the city of Tulsa.
US $ 100,000 is available through a restaurant aid fund organized by the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation and the Oklahoma Restaurant Association.
Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation President Elizabeth Frame Ellison is also the founder of Tulsa’s Food Road Mother Road Market. MRM closed last week along with all other Tulsa bars and restaurants.
The goal is to match the $ 100,000 in donations that will help support Tulsa restaurant, food, and beverage employees affected by COVID-19.
Ellison says, “We couldn’t prepare for that. Last week on Monday when my staff and we decided to follow CDC guidelines and close the market, we knew there would be hundreds of hourly employees affected by the closure . “
Ellison says they can pay MRM employees up to 60 days during the shutdown but understands that this is not feasible for most business owners.
Every Tulsan in the food service with relatives who cannot work because of the pandemic should apply.
Donations are accepted here.
