[THREAD] By taking portraits of local restaurant owners in front of their businesses, we documented the struggle the pandemic has caused on Austin's food scene. Here's what the restaurateurs say they're missing the most. (1/14) #COVID19 austinmonthly.com/gallery-austin…
 
“Our regulars, and hearing their laughter, and just getting to share stories with them. We have a nice interesting dynamic of people, (from students to professionals to moms and kids). And that is why we’re doing this.” (2/14) https://t.co/tJ0WYQqtxw
 
“Talking to them, shaking hands, and being closer. Just seeing a face.” (3/14) https://t.co/Ydvu1XagPi
 
“Their lovely smiles and great personalities are what I miss. We have a great regular cliental and they come and then their kids come and then they get grandkids. And I’m everybody’s Uncle Tom.” (4/14) https://t.co/xWKtnxDq57
 
“Their beauty. The beauty of them.” (5/14) https://t.co/WEUa62NCzT
 
“The community. It makes me very sad to see the patio so empty.” (6/14) https://t.co/GODTcZ395V
 
“That was the allure here—it was a place to come and get lost for an evening. It wasn’t just a place to get sustenance, it was a place to experience. I miss giving someone the full experience.” (7/14) https://t.co/DRp9O9I6Hi
 
“Seeing them on the floor. One of my favorite part of the job is we create stuff and make food for people and getting that instant reaction of an ‘mmm,’ that’s the best part of the business. Definitely don’t see that.” (8/14) https://t.co/Lh99YINiOf
 
“It doesn’t feel the same and warm. Sometimes we don’t recognize people in their masks. We’re happy people still come and support us, but it feels disconnected.” (9/14) https://t.co/PG0G3Eh7mr
 
“It feels like family, right, when you see regulars who’ve been coming in for years and sit down and they tell stories about how they’ve brought their family in, it feels good…We’ve realized how incredible our customers are.” (10/14) https://t.co/52Q0k0kvOZ
 
“Free Beer Fridays. Us having the patio full, lots of people drinking, and people coming with their friends and getting slammed in the kitchen—we don’t get that anymore. We miss interacting with people…now there’s no customer community.” (11/14) https://t.co/vhpl11FFUG
 
“Our regulars still come, and we can chat through the window…But now we don’t know who we’re selling food to. We’re just selling the food. They come and go, whereas before they stayed.” (12/14) https://t.co/Z9bxXwxbvx
 
“These businesses mean everything to me. I worked my whole career to be a chef. My family and employees make my livelihood.” (13/14) https://t.co/byzzKjgycL
 
“This is a legacy place. People ate our puréed black beans as a baby and now have a family of their own and are feeding their babies the same beans. People know everybody and it’s familiar. It feels like an extended family.” (14/14) https://t.co/EW0JfEacGJ

Local lawmakers are hard at work establishing a sense of order. That means everything from providing up-to-date medical information and distributing hundreds of hygiene kits, to implementing dozens of mobile hand-washing stations across the city and coordinating food access.
“Coordinated, compassionate, swift action reduces risk for everyone in our community. No matter how you feel about Austin’s plans and policies around homelessness, protecting the entire community has to come first,” a city spokesperson told Austin Monthly.
“The current public health crisis and the economic fallout is hurting all of us, but it’s especially painful for those who are already tremendously vulnerable,” says Susan McDowell, LifeWorks’ executive director. “But our commitment to our mission has, frankly, been renewed."
More good news: In addition to a $10 million utility relief bill, City Council approved a $15 million budget amendment last week that will provide relief funding to nonprofits and social service organizations.
With the majority of their clients unemployed (many worked in the service industry) and in need of food and shelter assistance, the nonprofit is expecting to allocate upwards of $110,000 per month in coronavirus-linked aid for the foreseeable future.
Members of the @AustinChinese have been dropping off prepared meals to LifeWorks, which are then given to youth living in their transitional and emergency housing programs. https://t.co/PGO1F8kfte
“People experiencing homelessness don’t have the same protections as everyone else. They don’t have four walls they can just stay inside of, clean and sanitary spaces to wash their hands and use the restroom,” says Taylor Hamilton, who has benefited from LifeWorks. https://t.co/VUYgCgchgf
Typically, hundreds of people pass through their downtown shelter to shower and use the restroom. But under the current circumstances, they’ve had to roll back their daytime services to protect as many as 120 people who sleep under their roof every night. https://t.co/pKuvdn2lmM
 
a nonprofit that helps families and young adults achieve self-sufficiency through housing, employment, and mental health services, is also feeling the effects of COVID-19.
Area nonprofits like @Frontsteps, which runs the ARCH (Austin Resource Center for the Homeless) and provides case management services to adult men experiencing homelessness, have also had to shift their processes.
“We’re doing everything we can to deliver the services that people need, but we have to make sure we have 24-hour coverage and cleanliness.” says Amy Price, director of development and communications at Front Steps. https://t.co/xc0ro2nF9g
As the @SalArmyAustin has worked to contain the virus in its three shelters, the organization has had to spend an extra $27,000 a week to employ additional case managers, custodial staff, and monitors.
The virus’ severe threat to older people has vastly reduced many nonprofits’ roster of workers. Furthermore, the lack of traffic through downtown has all but erased the opportunity for many people to panhandle. This places a heavy burden on shelters and soup kitchens.
