MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida’s restaurant and hospitality business is one of the most financially devastated by the shutdowns caused by the coronavirus pandemic. But South Florida’s biggest food event is stepping up to help out.

FIU’s Chaplain School of Hospitality and Tourism Management is partnering with the South Beach Wine and Food Festival to create a Hospitality Industry Relief Fund. The relief fund will provide immediate financial support to independently owned and operated restaurants and bars impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.

It has raised more than one million dollars through earnings from the festival itself and private donations such as the Estefan’s, Pitbull and others.

The festival’s founder, Lee Schrager said the money there now will be distributed to the restaurants who qualify within 72 hours. It will go directly to employees.

“The money we raised, every penny over a million dollars, is staying in South Florida. The first criteria for the hundreds of restaurants is that they have participated in the festival. the next round will go to everyone else. We want to make sure the money gets into the hands of the hospitality locally.”

Grants of up to $15,000 will be provided to help owners pay their employees and provide other benefits to employees who have been furloughed, laid off or whose incomes have been significantly reduced due to the pandemic.
