The London-Middlesex Restaurant Support Fund has been created in partnership with Club House for Chefs and McCormick Canada, the Middlesex London Food Policy Council, Pillar Nonprofit Network, rTraction, Tourism London and the Western Fair District. The fund awards eligible, independent restaurant operators with grants of $1,000 to support their businesses to open or remain open through the difficult times caused by COVID-19.
Since it’s initiation, the London-Middlesex Restaurant Support Fund has granted 33 restaurants monetary funds to help these businesses with costs inflicted from the pandemic. Above is a snapshot of the reach and impact of the fund within our community. You can keep up to date with restaurant recipients through our live map here.
