The New Orleans Business Alliance partnered with Get Shift Done to launch the Get Shift Done for NOLA initiative which coordinates, schedules, and pays adversely affected hourly workers in the hospitality industry to work shifts for Second Harvest Food Bank and other community-oriented food suppliers.


Over the next 8-10 weeks, Get Shift Done NOLA will connect workers left jobless by the COVID-19 pandemic to temporary employment opportunities with wages of $10 an hour.   These workers are filling critical roles to provide meals for the critically ill, homeless, and families directly impacted by COVID-19.  These roles were previously filled by volunteers but, through this partnership, they will provide income-generating opportunities for critical members of our community.


New Orleans becomes the first city in Louisiana to roll out the initiative, which now has counterparts in Texas, Arkansas, and Washington D.C., all funded through philanthropic efforts. The initial investment in New Orleans is coming from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation who has contributed $250K to stand up the fund and support approximately 50 individuals. Workers will be paid within 24-72 hours of completing their shifts and can choose as many shifts as they are able to work. NOLABA is currently accepting donations to increase the size and scope of the initiative.
