Co-Owners and Chefs Josh Kulp and Christine Cikowski screen the documentary Zero Weeks on Honey Butter Fried Chicken’s patio, exploring the issue of America’s lack of paid family leave in restaurants. Health benefits are rare to come by in the restaurant industry, but family leave is even harder to find. Kulp and Cikowski have done their best to combat this in their own restaurant, but they’re seeking to raise more awareness for this serious issue. Following the film, they’ll lead a Q&A session to talk more about the film and the audience’s experience and will also be joined on the panel by the film's director Ky Dickens, Melissa Josephs from Women Employed as well as local politicians Alderman Pawar and Alderman Mell. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the family of Kesha Scrivner, a woman from the film who passed away this past year. https://www.gofundme.com/keshascrivner
