Restaurant Workers Relief Program — The Lee Initiative and Maker's Mark teamed up to turn 610 Magnolia into a relief center. Now, the program has expanded to 16 restaurants nationwide. Here's how it works. 

Food trucks park it — Food truck sales are all but nonexistent as customers work from home. Usually spring is a busy season with events, food truck owners said. But now, it's like winter never ended. 

Gourmet Easter takeout — This Easter will feel different with the churches closed and events shut down, but you can still treat yourself to a meal from a Louisville-area restaurant. Here are 12+ locations serving up something special for the holiday. For service workers, a group of restaurants is doing an Easter dinner drive-thru as well.
