THE ELEPHANT INITIATIVE
Elephants are one of the most majestic and loyal creatures in the animal kingdom. With this initiative, we want to support and honor workers who are out of a job, especially independent contractors and sole proprietors that don't qualify for state unemployment benefits as they may be struggling during this time. We constantly rely on them to make us "look good" in every day life - from the hairdressers and nail technicians to event staff (including florists, caterers, wedding planners, and tent installers) and more. We want to provide assistance to the behind the scenes teams are often left behind yet are truly essential in our lives.
Thanks to Elmyriachi and Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours for partnering with us for this project! Both restaurants are currently open for takeout (please see websites for details) and appreciate your continued support!
Additional Community Resources and Assistance:
As of April 24, 2020, the State of Georgia has released Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) for individuals who are self-employed, gig workers, 1099 independent contractors, employees of churches, employees of non-profits, or those with limited work history who do not qualify for state unemployment benefits.

Other free food resources (subject to change, some restrictions may apply):
Please note pickup locations and times for each day; signups will close the day prior. Please direct questions to email@example.com, NOT to the individual restaurants. **Your meal will be secured only once you receive a confirmation email.**
Please support our efforts to reduce waste by providing your own utensils and reusable tote for transport.
If the day you want is full, please join the waitlist as we may be able to make adjustments based on interest or will notify you of cancellations!
