Ford’s Fish Shack has established a “Ford’s Family Fund” to benefit the 155 employees who have been furloughed due to the impact of COVID-19.
All online gift card sales from March 17-31 will be donated to the fund, as well as all gratuities from guest checks, online orders, and carryout orders during this time.
In addition, Ford’s Fish Shack will be contributing added funds to ensure these employees receive a paycheck with at least a portion of their regular pay in the next payroll period.
“It was an extremely tough decision to furlough our staff, but we hope to bring each one of them back once we are able to return to full capacity,” said Chef Tony. “In the meantime, we are doing our best to help them through this challenging time.”
If you’d like to support these efforts and help impacted Ford’s employees, please consider purchasing a gift card during this time.
