Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) met with area restaurateurs Oct. 5 for a discussion on how Congress can support the industry and its workforce during the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

#“The meeting consisted of a diverse group of restaurant owners,” said Chelsea Anderson of the HomeGrown Restaurant Group. “Sen. Warner basically wanted to get information from us on how things have been going since March. He wants to gather as much information as possible on how Congress might be able to help the industry.”
