Originating in Wuhan, China at the end of last year, a virus has been sweeping across the planet at an alarming pace.

And world leaders have been desperately scrambling to find a solution to the ongoing pandemic.

Including President Trump’s temporary travel ban between the United States and all European countries, including the United Kingdom.

And many cities all over the world have placed a temporary ban on any large or crowded social events and gatherings.

With millions being encouraged to avoid social situations and living in self-isolation and quarantine, restaurants and bars are struggling to make ends meet.

And the owners, managers, and staff are all facing an uncertain future.

Governors in California, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington all agreed to close wineries, restaurants, and bars in a last-ditch attempt to prevent further spread.

Looming mortgage and rent payments combined with no customers and low profits – It’s a recipe for disaster.

Including Guy Fieri.

As he knew how hard hit they were going to be.

And counting!

On the TMZ Live he explained, “I started thinking about my brothers and sisters in the restaurant industry and about a bunch of restaurants I was closing and we had to do something”.

With the partnership, they created and launched the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.

What they have done so far is pretty amazing.

Of which, the grants have been worth $500 each.

Additionally, anyone can donate to the fund here.
