In collaboration with Eurocham Wine & Spirits Committee, APISWA teamed up with 19 local bars and restaurants to provide 2,000 free meals to on-trade employees. These meals were delivered to the employees’ homes or else made available for pick-up.
”This campaign was designed to support local businesses, while also giving something back to the food and beverage community during difficult times for the sector.
In addition to providing this practical support to workers, the Together in Spirits project also highlighted the important role that the industry’s frontline workers have been playing: a role which will be crucial during the reopening of bars and restaurants in the post-Covid era.
To further support front-line workers during the lockdown, APISWA teamed up with a local social services agency, Montford Care, to provide free mental health counselling to those who need it. The Together in Spirits project provided practical support to workers and their families during the lockdown, showing solidarity with the groups which have been hit hardest by Covid-19, and the groups which will play a key role in the economic recovery.
