Giving Kitchen provides emergency assistance grants to food service workers in need of emergency assistance.
Our Crisis Grant program currently serves restaurant workers living in Georgia. Direct Grants are awarded based on financial need as well as a set of criteria according to the type of crisis. Most often, our financial assistance covers the cost of rent and utilities, paid directly to the service provider(s), or funeral expenses for an immediate family member or food service worker. Applications are reviewed by Giving Kitchen staff and a review committee consisting of GK board members. The average time to fully process an application from beginning to end is three weeks.
Please note: we do not pay medical expenses.
