Who Serve Us
Safety-net for CA’s restaurant community
Restaurants Care is a nonprofit fund providing stabilty and hope to California’s food and beverage community.
How We Help
F+B Workers. We provide up to $2,500 directly to F+B workers experiencing illness, injury, natural disaster, or death in the immediate family. Grants cover basic needs like groceries and rent while people recover from the crisis. We have helped over 2,400 F+B workers and their families since 2017.
Independent Restaurants. We award grants that build resilience among California’s independent restaurants. Grant applications are accepted twice a year and grants range from $3,000 – $10,000 depending on available funds.
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 expanded that safety-net to include independent restaurants in 2021. Restaurants Care provides hope and stability to those at the heart of California’s vibrant food and beverage community.
