Gathering at restaurants has been a great way to celebrate and connect with family and friends since before Gordon Ramsay learned how to hold a knife. But with the spread of COVID-19 and the adoption of social distancing, restaurants across the world have shifted to take out only or shut down completely to protect the health and safety of workers and customers. It's been inspiring to see service industry workers help their community and adjust to these challenging times.
To help service industry workers affected by COVID-19, TikTok has partnered with the James Beard Foundation and the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to help provide support for workers, sustain local business, and reduce the financial impact of the coronavirus on the restaurant community. Join us in our support through the #FoodFam hashtag found on the Discover tab, and tune in this evening to catch Italian chef, cookbook author, restaurateur and Food Network television personality Giada De Laurentiis and popular TikTok creator Tabitha Brown go LIVE in support of these organizations.
Whether you're a home cook, work at a restaurant, or just love to eat, we're all a part of the #FoodFam. So show us your latest recipe and consider making a donation to help support service industry workers during this challenging time. TikTok is matching donations until May 27 so any dollar you give will have twice the impact.
