Our leadership team is here with you through this crisis. We will continue updating this page with any known financial resources for restaurant employees and/or citizens due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Post sponsored financial resources
Starting on March 18th, The Post will provide 20% of net carryout sales to all staff members placed on leave of absence beginning in the month of March. Any staff member who refers a carry out order will receive the entire 20% employee fund allocation for that carryout order.
This program will remain in effect until the Post re-opens it’s dine in services, or until leadership deem’s the program no longer feasible in which case all employees will be notified.
Leadership is working with the Missouri Department of labor on how to best redistribute each staff member’s share of the fund back to the individual while minimizing any negative impact towards potential unemployment benefits received.
All restaurant employees (not just Post restaurant employees) can fill out this form to potentially receive social tips (virtual tips / donations) from family, friends, regulars, and other potential generous donors. It is important to share that link wherever possible using #SocialTipping so that potential donors get their eyes on it as well.
Government sponsored financial resources
