SF New Deal connects struggling restaurants with community groups distributing food

Episode Summary

As cities instituted pandemic shelter-in-place orders and restaurant employers were forced to lay off their workers, a new nonprofit called the SF New Deal began serving as a mediator between struggling restaurants and community organizations that distribute food to vulnerable populations in the city, as a way of helping both. Jacob Bindman, co-founder and director of operations at the SF New Deal, joins guest host Sonia Paul to examine to what extent the nonprofit can be a part of a sustainable business model for restaurants.
