The restaurant community came together and raised money to support Jose while he recovered. At that moment, we knew that something bigger had to happen. Restaurants Care was created to take care of the most vulnerable in our industry. We are here to offer care, support and hope during their darkest hour.
Restaurants Care’s COVID-19 Response
We have been humbled by the need of those in our restaurant community. While we’re not out of the woods yet, we’ve made a meaningful impact. Because of our community’s generosity, we have been able to provide grants to over 1,160 restaurant workers and their families (and counting!). Donations paid for groceries, rent, utility bill payments, and other critical necessities. Together we’ve kept families together and fridges full.
Please note, we have closed our COVID relief grant application (help for furloughed workers) as we’ve awarded all available funding. We continue to provide grants to food and beverage workers facing injury, illness, death in the immediate family, and housing disaster. (Tenga en cuenta que hemos cerrado nuestra solicitud de subvención de ayuda COVID ya que hemos concedido todos los fondos disponibles.) Click here for additional resources.

what drives us
Restaurants Care’s mission is to provide support for our restaurant families in need by offering financial assistance for basic living expenses as people recover from an injury, illness, death in the family, or unseen hardship. We are investing in our workforce, the heart of our community, restaurant workers in their time of need.
We are moved and honored to be a resource to our restaurant community, and we look forward to helping many more through Restaurants Care.
