With jobless claims spiking to record levels, Get Shift Done DMV is helping people earn a basic income while also providing meals to neighbors in need. The initiative coordinates, schedules, and pays adversely affected hourly workers in the hospitality industry to work shifts for local nonprofit food access providers.

Get Shift Done DMV, with founding investments from The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation, Capital One, the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation, and the Bainum Family Foundation, provides wages of $15 an hour to hospitality workers displaced by the coronavirus pandemic. These workers are filling a critical gap for nonprofit food access providers facing unprecedented demand for their services while also struggling with a shortfall of volunteers.

Nearly 1,800 workers have worked over 59,000 hours for 32 nonprofits.
