The Coronavirus Response Fund is a coalition of philanthropy, government, and business partners who united to create a Response Fund that will rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations at the frontlines of Kentucky's current Coronavirus pandemic.

Jade Hollan, owner of Lexington List blog, reached out to Barley & Rye about her mission to help Kentuckians support their favorite businesses in one spot. We teamed up, created the hashtag & campaign #LEXSTICKTOGETHER and got rolling! We now have over 100 businesses listed on this site. Please make sure to share the word to your friends, family, and colleagues.


We've created a Pay-It-Forward platform! Pick a business of your choice to purchase a gift card and select an anonymous recipient (like a nurse, teacher, or someone who recently suffered a lay off). The business you selected the gift card for will do their work to get your pay-it-forward gift card to someone in need. You can also send the gift card to someone you know to enjoy a delivered or curbside meal, virtual art classes, virtual yoga session, and so much more!
