Front Burner created another concept in the midst of all this: Furlough Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that provides meals to hospitality workers who’ve lost their jobs in recent weeks. Dewitt talks about that effort and other ways his company has responded to the coronavirus shutdown.

He also talks about what he expects will change coming out of the shutdown.
