From the moment we started 86C19, we’ve been all about supporting the restaurant industry. Our goals to support locally-owned restaurants with funds, and to help local restaurant industry folks with meals, have been achieved. At this time, the 86C19 Movement has changed focus from providing meal relief to promoting both Mask Awareness and the restaurant industry’s next hurdle, staffing. With so many people stuck in the pandemic rut, we created this video in hopes to stoke their internal fires. We understand some folks are still hesitant, but with the safety standards and guidelines being followed, a hospitality gig is pretty darn safe. Plus, in our Greater Silicon Valley, restaurant guests have become very considerate and more thoughtful over this second year of the pandemic, which is refreshing to hear and see in our community.
The 86C19 Movement is still alive and well, and we encourage everyone to get back to work and help rebuild the local business community together.
