Restaurant supply platform DoorDash has launched a restaurant catastrophe reduction fund that may provide grants of as much as $10,000 to US eating places affected by pure disasters over the subsequent yr, the corporate stated Wednesday. The $1 million fund will likely be open to eligible restaurant homeowners starting November 1st and is a partnership with small enterprise help platform Hey Alice. Eating places affected by Hurricane Ida in August and the continuing California wildfires are eligible to use, the corporate stated.
To qualify, eating places should be experiencing hardship resulting from a state or federally declared pure catastrophe; have a brick-and-mortar location within the US with three or fewer places; and have fewer than 50 workers per location. The eating places must have income of $3 million or much less at every location for the previous 12 months and have been open for at the very least six months.
