Who Serve Us
Assistance for F+B workers during times of crisis.
Restaurants Care is a nonprofit fund that provides direct relief grants to struggling food and beverage workers in California. Grants cover basic needs like groceries and rent while people recover from illness, injury, natural disaster, death in the family, and more. We helped over 1,600 F+B workers and their families since 2017.
How We Help
We provide direct financial assistance (typically $500 – $1,500) to F+B workers experiencing illness, injury, natural disaster, or death in the immediate family.
Restaurants Care is a program of the California Restaurant Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit that has been serving the community since 1981. We created a safety-net for food and beverage workers in 2017 and a safety-net for small restaurant owners in 2021. Restaurants Care provides hope and resources to those at the heart of California’s vibrant food and drink scene.
