FEEDING OUR RESTAURANT & HOSPITALITY FAMILY
In this unprecedented time, many people are in need. As COVID-19 directives have closed public spaces, many in the restaurant and hospitality industries are wondering where their next meal will come from.
We wanted to be part of the solution. And, Staff Meal Dallas was formed.
Staff Meal Dallas is a collaborative effort between FestEvents Foundation (a registered 501(c)3), SVM Productions and local chefs. The goal is to provide chef crafted meals to restaurant and hospitality workers in-need during this critical time.
