No one should feel uncertainty about feeding their loved ones.
For the next three months, we’re asking our salaried employees to give up the equivalent of one hour of their monthly salary and donate it to the Edmonton Food Bank. Where we can, the companies themselves will match those donations.
As an industry, we are lucky – the unprecedented situation with COVID-19 will likely be something we adjust to, rather than something that poses an existential threat to our businesses.
A lot of our staff will be protected from the worst of the economic impacts of COVID-19.
However, there are many people in our economy – wait staff; people who rely on retail shifts; airline staff; artists; substitute teachers – that suddenly find themselves in a precarious situation they could not have expected.
