Helping Restaurants and food industry professionals during the pandemic

The Comité Tricolore responds to individual requests for help from French people in sometimes very delicate situations, but we also want to build a partnership between local French restaurants owners or chefs and American impacted by the COVID crisis. Two projects in partnership with the French embassy are working in this direction: we are soliciting French restaurants or buying their services to provide food to caregivers and patients in DC hospitals and to homeless people in a shelter run by Friendship Place.

We are also helping Restaurants and food industry professionals through our network "Réseau des métiers de bouche". Watch our 14 minute film:

French Chefs of the DC area and food industry professionals tell us about the impact of COVID 19, how they survive while restaurants were ordered to close, how the food industry will look like after the crisis and what will they do differently if COVID 19 was coming back.

The needs are there, and our French or French-American community will show solidarity with our host country.
The Comité Tricolore thanks you in advance.
