Now brought to you by Scout Magazine.
In this special Covid-19 episode we brought on Abdallah (Dallah) El Chami of Victoria's Superbaba to discuss the Vancouver Food and Beverage Relief Fund he and couple of his friends recently started.
With so many of us in the industry struggling with this current way of life, we were eager to hear Dallah's thoughts on how he and his fellow local restaurateurs were and are handling this pandemic. We waxed on the stresses of paying rent, keeping and maintaining staff, what their relief fund has set out to achieve, insights into those who've been affected and much much more.
Whether you're a restaurant owner or employed in this industry, we urge you to listen if you're searching for answers, as we touch on a broad spectrum of topics relating to this pandemic. Dallah was very candid and open about the struggles restaurants are now facing.
If you are in need of assistance, applications for the Vancouver Food and Beverage Relief Fund are now open. Please do apply.
There's also a Slack thread you can join as well if you'd like to stay up to date and connected with other restaurateurs in the community. The link is on the website.
Superbaba is an excellent Mediterranean restaurant in Victoria. Do look to support them once they re-open.
