Restaurants Care is here for you
We are committed to serving California’s food service community as we work together to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this time, due to our current resources and in an effort to help our most vulnerable, Restaurants Care grants are evaluated in the following order of priority for restaurant workers who are:
(1) Diagnosed with coronavirus (COVID-19), or a caregiver for an immediate family member who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or quarantined with a doctor’s note
(2) Restaurant closed and out of work 3 weeks or more and no unemployment benefits
Please rest assured that we are working tirelessly to address an influx of requests for financial assistance and it is our goal to support as many in our restaurant community as possible. To get involved click here!

How You Can Help
Join the movement and help us raise much-needed funds for restaurant workers for COVID-19 relief through Restaurants Care®.
Restaurants Care® is an established emergency assistance fund for California restaurant workers, and we’ve seen these workers through five natural disasters in less than three years. By coming together, we can get through this too! But we need your help.
It is easy + turnkey. We will send you a toolkit with social posts, images and a letter to request support from partners.
Please contact Alycia Harshfield at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.

“I’m a chef and restaurant operator. In 2017 when fires devastated wine country I teamed up with Restaurants Care® to help. They are on the frontlines helping to preserve our California food culture by helping the workers at the heart of our food family. By coming together in this crisis, we can serve hope to those suffering and get through this.”
