Who is Get Shift Done

What is the mission of Get Shift Done?

Get Shift Done is connecting the hospitality workforce affected by the COVID-19 virus with local non-profits to serve and provide hunger relief to communities across America.

Get Shift Done was launched to employ affected hourly workers in the hospitality industry to perform shifts for non-profit organizations and institutions in need during the COVID-19 crisis.

Where/how can I find more information about Get Shift Done?

Visit GetShiftDone.Org and continue to check back for updates. 

Who is Get Shift Done trying to help?

Both the non-profits whose volunteers were not coming to work due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and the hospitality workers who were displaced from their jobs due to the mandatory closing of restaurants.   

Why is Get Shift Done doing this?

When less volunteers were coming to work their shifts at food banks and other non-profit agencies dedicated to serving the food insecure, we saw an opportunity of filling those shifts with those laid off from the food service industry and paying them an hourly wage.

Non-profit Partners

How can other areas participate?

In order to participate communities need to have a facility that serves the food insecure and large enough to employ several workers at a time. The community also needs to have funding in place to pay displaced hospitality employees who register to work shifts at the agencies.  

What type of non-profit can register to ask for help from Get ShiftDone?

We need to work with non-profits who are already accepting food donations, managing the distribution of the food and have facilities large enough to have many workers at a time working shifts.

Is there any criteria to register my non-profit that needs help preparing and delivering meals?

Details about this are included in our app platform.  You can learn more by completing our registration process within the app itself. 

After I register my non-profit to request workers, what happens next?

We are working individually with non-profits to address their volunteer needs. Shifts are assigned after going through our onboarding process.

Can any non-profit register to request workers from Get Shift Done?

We prefer to have non-profits that are already serving the food insecure and have a need for more volunteers to meet the number of meals required for their community.

Hospitality Workers

Is there any prior experience criteria required to register as a displaced worker?

We are supporting workers from the hospitality industry.  

How do workers sign up? 

You can sign up by downloading the app.  Please note that shifts are limited and only active in cities where GetShiftDone is operating with local partners.

What documents will I need to register as a displaced worker?

Details about this are included in our app platform.  You can learn more by completing our registration process within the app itself. 

After I register as a displaced worker, what happens next and how/when will I get paid?

After you register in our app, you are part of the system and every step and feature of the process is handled from there.  

Do I need a vehicle if I’m asked to deliver meals?

We have displaced workers who are using public transportation to get to participating Food Banks to work shifts.  If you do not have a vehicle, you will not be matched to deliver meals.
