TableBoost's COVID-19 Food Relief Program Supports Local Restaurants & Food Pantries
Restaurant owners are saving thousands while simultaneously helping the underfed.
"This COVID-19 crisis is hurting everyone — especially small, independent restaurants and lower-income members of our community who are now struggling to put food on the table," said Tim Collins, CEO of TableBoost. "Our team wants to help as many people as we can, so we came up with the idea of making a financial contribution to local food pantries for every new TableBoost account created by a restaurant. We want to see our local restaurants survive and thrive and, at the same time, support food pantries. Food security is the major charitable focus for TableBoost, Inc. and this fits that well."
"Requests for food from families and individuals across our two pantries in Gloucester and Ipswich has increased by more than 40% since the COVID-19 crisis began in mid-March," said Julie LaFontaine, the President and CEO of The Open Door. "Financial contributions from companies like TableBoost help us put food in the hands of those who have taken the hardest economic punch."
Sue Gabriel, Executive Director of Beverly Bootstraps, another local agency helping to feed those in need as well as providing case management services to the growing number of people in financial crisis, added, "Many families in our community were struggling with food and financial issues before COVID-19, some unemployed, some under-employed and many others living paycheck to paycheck. This current health crisis has greatly changed the level of need for so many as well as increased the number of local families in need of help at this time. We are so grateful for the support from companies likeTableBoost."
