According to an analysis conducted by the Institute for Women's Policy Research, about 60% of those losses were experienced by women. Some of these women are mothers and are still faced with the stress and responsibility of feeding their family. What better way to brighten someones day than by sending them a meal made with love?
The American Hotel and Lodging Industry predicted as many as four million people working in the hotel industry could lose their job as a result of the novel coronavirus. UBS predicted one in five restaurants could close due to the virus, which has in most states forced restaurants to offer take out and delivery only due to statewide stay-at-home orders. Unfortunately, people in these industries live paycheck to paycheck and with no means of employment the uncertainty of how they will pay for their next meal is now a reality. Through this pay it forward meal donation of $40 you will not only support a local small business in the hospitality industry but also give to a family in need.
