The Power Of 10. Simple Math: $10,000 = 10 Full-time Jobs + 1,000 Free Meals
Lovers of food in the DC Area know the name Erik Bruner-Yang as someone who has launched a variety of kitchens featuring his creative take on different cuisines. In the last few years, he has opened Maketto, Brothers and Sisters, ABC Pony, and most recently was named executive chef of &Pizza. Like most of the chef/restaurateurs in the county, Erik has had to assess his businesses and pivot.  Some of the restaurants are functioning in a completely new model and some have had to shut their doors.  This “change” gave Erik an idea and has lent itself to the creation of a new initiative: The Power of 10. Today on Industry Night, Nycci and Erik talk the drastic changes that have had to be made during the pandemic and how his concept, The Power of 10, can be executed not just here locally, but across the country as well, and most importantly, how you can get involved.Listen to the full episode for the details.

Power Of 10
Founded in response to the national food crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic, the initiative is dedicated to maintaining restaurant operations while keeping their employees and communities safe. The mission is based on re-employing staff, establishing food security and engaging with the community. How does it work? By raising $10,000 per week in donations, the organization is able to provide 10 full-time jobs and 1,000 free meals to any direct, in-need community. This model allows restaurants to reopen without having to implement takeout/delivery services that they were not built to handle. The restaurants launching this initiative are Cane,  ABC Pony, and Maketto. This pilot program will provide hot meals, while employing hospitality industry professionals who have been without work. The Power of 10 is a scalable model that local governments and communities across the nation can implement to provide immediate relief. For those looking to donate more or start a Power of 10 initiative in their own community, please visit www.powerof10initiative.com.
