-Laura Sant

Hey y’all I’m Sam Truitt I’m a junior graphic design major at VCU and freelance designer. Like y’all I’m feeling the hurt. Most of my clients come from the food and beverage industry I mostly work with clients out in Austin, Texas. I would love to offer up any services during this time to help get the word out there and help the Richmond community. Richmond is built on small businesses like yourselves so seeing some of these places go away would be truly heart breaking. It’s times like these where community really matters. Please reach out for help!!

Hey guys, we put together a campaign “Keep Calm and Nom Nom” to raise awareness of helping local restaurants through the purchase of gift cards. Have had a ton of traffic on our site and plan on adding a t-shirt section where all proceeds will go to individual restaurants who participate. Let us know how we can help any way we can!

Richmond Restaurant Workers Support Fund

The Richmond Restaurant community has been decimated by closures due to Covid—19. Many thousands of workers are unexpectedly unemployed with little to no way to provide for themselves and their families. This fund aims to help the most vulnerable of those workers through grants. Please consider donating to support these workers who have spent years cooking and serving you in our wonderful Richmond dining community.
