The pandemic has hit everyone hard, some more than others. The most common road for an immigrant business owner to take in pursuing the American Dream is to open a restaurant. Often, these are small family run operations with limited capital or resources. Many of these restaurants are barely hanging-on during the pandemic and a small act of kindness such as words of encouragement or praise from you will help them endure these challenging times.
The “I Love Your Food” project at Uncle Sam’s Immigrant Cafe is a simple and quick way for you to help. You will write a short note on our template about what you love at your favorite immigrant owned restaurant; you will snap a photo of it and post it to our Facebook group and tag your restaurant. We would encourage you to print out the note and mail it to them, but this step is optional.
While we often feel overwhelmed by what is going on in the world, and it feels like there is little we can do to change things….. please remember that individually we are drops of water but collectively we are an ocean. Imagine the encouragement your restaurateur will feel while reading your note. Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement to make it to the other side.
Thank you so much for helping.
Please also consider making a tax-deductible donation so we may continue to support and promote our restaurateurs.
Visit our Facebook group to post a photo of your letter, tag the restaurant and if you feel so inclined, drop it in the mail to them!
