Children of Restaurant Employees (CORE)

CORE grants support to the children of food and beverage employees navigating life-altering circumstances. Since 2004, CORE has raised more than $2.5 million and granted support to more than 225 families from across the industry and the country.

If a family qualifies for CORE support, they can grant up to $10,000 for food and beverage service employees with children and their families. These grants cover medical bills and funeral expenses for children, gas cards, groceries, clothing, medical supplies and therapies, utilities, rent and mortgage, and whatever else a family might need to navigate their specific circumstance. CORE works with the family to create the best and most impactful grant for their family and needs.

If you are interested in applying for support or referring a family for support, please visit their grant application. For more examples of CORE’s impact in the food and beverage service industry, read stories about families they’ve supported.
