AUSTIN, Texas — A new recipe series featuring Austin chefs is helping raise money for the restaurant industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Restaurants and bars were ordered to close on March 17 in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
On Tuesday, the City of Austin revealed hospitality was one of the hardest-hit sectors, with thousands of jobs lost due to the closures.
Supporters can donate a minimum of $25 to the organization’s GoFundMe page to receive 10 recipe videos with easy-to-follow written instructions from 10 different Austin chefs, according to a release.
New videos will be released weekly and be accessible on the Hands for Austin Restaurants website. Donors will receive a password for access.
All donations go to participating restaurants’ employees.
