Connecting Hospitality In the Greater Austin Area
The Stay-at-Home Somm is a collaborative effort to support newly unemployed hospitality professionals in a variety of positions. The project is designed to:
- Provide an educational service and connective experience similar to the ones that were provided during restaurant service. Classes will allow those who have not been financially affected by Covid-19 to directly support individuals while benefiting from a home activity in return.
- Give displaced beverage professionals like Sommeliers a relevant project that utilizes their skills while they are unable to work.
- Keep our hospitality communities connected by drawing awareness to Austin businesses (restaurants, retailers, Texas wineries) and encourage people to conscientiously consume.
- Give visibility and fast financial solutions to service industry workers who have been struggling to access resources like unemployment, foodstamps, or who are now unable to pay bills.
