Toronto restaurant workers pivot from COVID-19

When Ontario went into lockdown in mid-March, 2020 due to the pandemic, bartender Marko Yovanovich lost his full-time job. He had worked at Trinity Common in Toronto’s Kensington Market for a year. The next day, Yovanovich started his own business: Food Group Catering. The restaurant industry, which had to shut down in March and April, still had 250,000 people out of work in October, 2020 according to a recent study. Ontario and Quebec were impacted most drastically.
