The Grateful Table
Caring for our restaurant family in a time of need
Thank you to all who attended The Grateful Table dinner on Oct. 27. It was a wonderful celebration of gratitude for restaurant workers at the heart of our community. Thank you for being part of the celebration and making the event such a success. Because of your generosity, we raised more than $90,000 for Restaurants Care hardship grants. The funding will be put to good use helping more families like Arturo’s, who spoke at the dinner. His moving story is why Restaurants Care is important.
About The Grateful Table:

Restaurants Care provides crisis grants to restaurant employees for basic living expenses and costs related to illness, injury or natural disaster. The funds raised at The Grateful Table will serve as a life-line to many.
