A HAYWOOD STREET REFLECTION BY: DAVE
Katie Button Restaurants has been by our side since 2013, even in the hardest of times. It is difficult for me to even put into words the amount of sheer gratitude and respect I have for this group. They have helped us when we felt alone, when we felt trapped and unsure. They have helped us get up and even dragged us along in uncertain times, and this was all before the pandemic hit!
When the pandemic did begin, Katie Button Restaurants joined forces with us right away. They found funding, found resources, and allied themselves with our fight to keep things as normal as possible. First they carried us alone, then alongside Chef Jose Andres and World Kitchen, and most recently in partnership with Asheville Strong. While funding is one thing, they also did all the heavy lifting by preparing quality and wholesome food for our people. We could not have imagined a pandemic, let alone, how to survive one, without their guidance which not only got us through, but also helped us have one of our most meaningful years of service yet. We did not know how strong we really were until we were forced to show our strength. Would we have made it? Sure. But, not on the level we did because of these fine people. So shout it from the rooftops, and let the whole world know– these community leaders stepped up to the challenge when it was required.
This Wednesday will be the final day for KBR’s participation in Haywood Street pandemic relief. Our entire staff and the Holy Chaos community gives thanks for the generous support we have received from this devoted Chefs at Welcome Table partner.
