Service! A relief effort for hospitality workers is being organized as a non-profit community association composed of restaurant industry folks serving Franklin County in Columbus, Ohio. The program's focus is to identify and utilize resources to eliminate hunger among restaurant industry workers and families.
Service! has one goal and that is to alleviate hunger within the service industry in Franklin County by soliciting, collecting, and preparing food for distribution. Our services could possibly include a food box program, an emergency food carry out program, among other potential social service needs that provide opportunities for self-sufficiency.
Service! would produce food from a licensed commercial kitchen or restaurant for folks to pick up from a satellite pickup location(s) with scheduled pickups to get food to people that need it as soon as possible. We know that we can’t wait because the people that have been displaced from their jobs can’t wait.
Service! will be an important resource to help this group of people because we can respond quickly with the one of the most important resources these families need: food! Supporting Service! would be minimal investment in our community in comparison to the cost of ignoring the problem of hunger in the city and the influence it has on a number of health and crime issues. This is the moment we need to pull together to take care of one another.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
