Bidwell perk was one the businesses that got help from aaron rodger's covid relief fund.

Kristian bridge: we are seeing this beautiful weather now and power says they will use some of the money they would have used on rent to make upgrades to their patio here so people can enjoy their coffee outdoors and......... here at the foodie cafe the owner says they have managed to stay steady but they are excited for that extra boost of business in june.
