Buffa's Employee Relief Fund

Like so many restaurants around the world, we have been forced to furlough almost our entire staff due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. A donation will help our employees make ends meet and help keep our Buffa's Employee Family together for when this crisis is over.

Every $1 donated goes to our employees. Buffa's will not keep a cent.
