Richmond Aims to Feed On-Duty Workers and Help Local Restaurants
As businesses are looking for lifelines and essential workers are focused on doing their jobs, the City of Richmond is starting a program to pay small, locally-owned restaurants to feed first responders. The Camel was a popular spot to catch a show, get a drink and maybe even grab a burger or some tacos. Then the coronavirus changed everything. "Basically we went from a music venue doing live music every night of the week to essentially a to-go, takeout restaurant," explains co-owner Matt Hansen.
