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 Anyone may view jobs online. If you would like to post a job offer to the site, sign in at top right of the page with user ID: beardjobs and password: post5@beard.
