WEBINAR: #FairKitchens Chef Support


Learn more on how to support our Chefs’ mental health and wellbeing

Many aspects of our foodservice industry have been turned upside down. This webinar will help support those in hospitality with their mental health and wellbeing as we move through this time together.

The Foodservice and Hospitality industry is facing unprecedented change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As restaurant operations get ready for a different environment of sit-down dining, emphasis on delivery or takeout or in some cases, make the decision to close their doors for business; anxiety, stress, financial concerns, isolation, and uncertainty can take a toll on the physical and mental wellbeing of those affected.

Our UFS Chefs together with the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) talk about how the #FairKitchens helpline can help everyone in our industry cope during this time and come out ahead and happy.
