CLEVELAND — Restaurant employees are going through a difficult time during the stay-at-home order.

That's one of the reasons why the Ohio Restaurant Employee Relief Fund was created by the Ohio Restaurant Association Education Foundation in collaboration with the Ohio Restaurant Association.

The relief fund benefits employees displaced due to COVID-19.

One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards grant awards to restaurant and food service employees.

“We can all work together to support people in Ohio’s restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry and help make it vibrant again," said John Barker, ORA President & CEO.
