We Take Care of Each Other

Even before the pandemic, 1 in 5 adults struggled with mental health issues—and that number is only rising, especially for front line workers in the restaurant industry. In a survey by the group Chefs with Issues in partnership with Heirloom Foundation, 73 percent of chefs reported that they suffer from multiple mental health issues, including depression, anxiety and substance abuse.

That's why ROAR is doubling down on its efforts to provide free (or deeply discounted) health and wellness programs to restaurant workers. ROAR is pleased to announce that starting today industry workers have access to a new suite of services as part of ROAR’s ongoing efforts to create a holistic platform that supports the people who make our industry and our city so magnificent.

These free and deeply discounted resources include the Coa 8-Week Emotional Fitness Series, One-on-One Financial Literacy Training from the Financial Gym, Meditation from Calm, and a dashboard of health and wellness programs from Oyster Sunday, and were secured with the support of industry partners including Resy/American Express.
