The SFA has partnered with CIRA (the Council of Independent Restaurants) and the James Beard Foundation to build a job bank for displaced restaurant workers.
Approximately 40 SFA members have volunteered to phone Beard Foundation member restaurants. They are asking that the restaurant offer a minimum of one job to displaced workers. Preferably two or more. They are explaining that each offer must come with a promise of temporary housing and that the employee will likely need help with relocation funds, too.
Job offers will be posted at http://www.cirajobs.com/. Anyone may view jobs online. If you would like to post a job offer to the site, sign in at top right of the http://www.cirajobs.com/ page with user ID: beardjobs and password: post5@beard.
