The Max Cares Foundation has donated $25,000 to feed restaurant workers through a food distribution event that will take place on Thursday, April 16, at Max Burger in West Hartford.
Max Cares Foundation, Inc. announced Tuesday a major initiative to feed restaurant workers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Max Cares Foundation is donating $25,000 to procure grocery staples and produce for hospitality employees who have lost work due to restaurant shutdowns. Max Restaurant Group is handling the food distribution via no-contact pick-up this Thursday, April 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. at their Max Burger location, 124 LaSalle Road in West Hartford Center.
Max Cares Foundation President Richard Rosenthal states, “I know firsthand how devastating the impact of the restaurant industry shutdown has been for the chefs, servers, kitchen staff, and front of house staff. These people work so hard throughout the year to make sure everyone is well fed and happy. Now it is our turn to ensure that none of these hardworking people and their families go hungry.”
Max Cares Foundation will be distributing approximately 500 bags of free groceries this Thursday. Any unemployed hospitality workers should be present on Thursday at Max Burger between 1 and 3 p.m. to participate in this opportunity.
