Serving hope to our communities, one meal at a time
Formed during a dire, unprecedented time in the hospitality industry as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Furlough Kitchen is a unique collaboration between FB Society (formerly Front Burner Restaurants) and CitySquare.
Utilizing FB Society’s catering commissary kitchen at Vestals Catering and CitySquare's support network, Furlough Kitchen initially united its culinary team to provide free, hot meals for all hospitality workers affected by restaurant and event closures due to COVID-19. With generous donations, we were able to expand and serve all industries within weeks of launching.
With the impact of the February 2021 snowstorm, Furlough Kitchen has reopened in partnership with FB Society restaurants – Mexican Sugar, Sixty Vines, The Ranch, Ida Claire, Son of a Butcher, Italian Job and more – to share meals with those in need, including city workers and displaced families at The Family Place.
Your support allows us to serve individually packaged meals to our DFW neighbors that need them most.
