THE WI RRF GIVEBACK CAMPAIGN
We invite and urge recipients of RRF funds in Wisconsin to pledge an amount equal to 3% of RRF proceeds to CIF. We will pass this money, along with funds raised from corporate and individual donors directly to those minority-owned WI-based businesses who were notified by the SBA in writing that they would receive Restaurant Revitalization Fund grants, but whose payments were halted on June 14th following the outcome of lawsuits in Texas and Tennessee that barred the SBA from distributing grants on the basis of race and sex.
We seek to uplift those left behind and try to mend the hurt, pain, and frustrations for the minority-owned restaurant operators most in need and disproportionately hurt by the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Are you one of the WI-based 3,000 businesses who were promised RRF funds and had funds rescinded by the SBA? Please contact us.
(Only Wisconsin-based businesses at this time)
Cook It Forward is a new community response strategy that brings together restaurants with traditional non-profits, community-centered corporate entities to address ongoing inequities in our food systems.
