The Drinks List Helps The Hospitality Industry

April 3, 2020

The restaurant industry has been suffering great hardship with the closures of dining rooms and the subsequent staff layoffs of thousands of people. The Drinks List has partnered with our BC suppliers to create a program to donate funds to organizations helping hospitality workers.

The program works as follows: for every case of wine, beer, and cider sold to restaurants, the program partners will donate funds to organizations that support hospitality workers in need. A $12 donation will be made for each case of wine shipped to restaurants, as well as a $6 donation for each case of cider, vodka soda, or beer. The initiative will continue for as long as dining room restrictions are in place.

To jump start the support, an initial donation of $500 will be made to the Vancouver Food + Beverage Community Relief Fund (VanFBC Relief Fund). This initiative addresses Vancouver food and beverage workers’ greatest immediate, short-term needs, such as groceries and prescriptions. An additional donation of $1,300 will be made to the BC Hospitality Foundation to ensure the continuation of the charitable work they do for hospitality workers across British Columbia experiencing financial crisis due to a heath condition.
