Dine Around for APRON to benefit service workers

Restaurant industry workers–chefs and line cooks, servers, bar tenders, dishwashers and other back-of-the-house essential workers–are notoriously less protected by worker benefits such as sick leave and health insurance. When financial hardships caused by illness or injury strike, Apron, Inc., a non -profit focused on helping restaurant workers in need, steps in. Tuesday, Jan 27 diners can help by patronizing Dine Around for Apron at any of the more than 40 Louisville-area restaurants that will donate a portion of the day’s profits to Apron.

Founded in 2011, Apron, whose motto is “Helping you out of the weeds,” has given more than $35,000 in grants to independent restaurant employees in need.
