Following the success of our event on October 11th, at Peque Tapas Y Vinos, we’re officially launching the #Pour4PR initiative, as a way for hospitality professionals to engage suppliers, patrons, their dynamic beverage programs, and special events to send urgently needed funds DIRECTLY to Puerto Rico.
Our Partner, Serve PR
Serve PR is dedicated to providing immediate relief to the people of Puerto Rico with direct, on-the-ground assistance. Their mission begins with the thousands of service industry professionals impacted by the hurricanes and aims to rebuild all aspects of the hospitality industry from pasture to plate, promoting growth, community, and sustainability for the future of Puerto Rico. The hospitality industry employs more than 30% of the Puerto Rican economy. The devastation has put most of them out of work.
FAMILY MEAL – Based on the concept of taking care of our restaurant families with a hot meal before service, we are building a network of restaurants and bars throughout the entire island, providing them with generators and all necessary equipment and supplies in order to operate. From there we assist in the delivery of hot meals to those to in need in the surrounding area. Consider also, the various other industries whose livelihoods depend on a thriving hospitality industry, including local farms and food suppliers. It is our mission to help them replant their crops and rebuild their infrastructure in order to participate in a more sustainable economy. Please join our efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico from the inside out. Your donation will help serve Family Meal to those in need while we help rebuild the industry that feeds them. Read more HERE.
