Walk-On’s feeding hospitality workers who have been laid off or furloughed

News

Walk-On’s is providing some relief to hospitality workers who have either been laid off or furloughed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“As is the case across the country, community and team needs are changing rapidly and our involvement has never been more vital,” said Walk-On’s COO & President Scott Taylor. “We have been feeding our team, including those that have been furloughed, but we wanted to take it a step further” he said.

In collaboration with Furlough Kitchen in Dallas, Walk-On’s is providing furloughed hospitality workers one free meal no matter where they worked.

Furlough Kitchen by Walk-On’s is a food truck that will give one classic burger with cheese and fries to furloughed hospitality workers from 2-5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31 and Thursday, April 2. The deal is happening at Walk-On’s flagship location at 3838 Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge.

“We were inspired by Front Burner Restaurants’ Furlough Kitchen, and are incredibly thankful to be able to collaborate with them to bring a similar concept to Baton Rouge” said Taylor. “With help from donors, we have the ability to lessen the impact that COVID-19 has caused, one meal at a time. We are all in this together” he said.
