Restaurant Employee Relief Fund

 

As the restaurant industry continues to be impacted by the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (IRAEF) has developed the  Restaurant Employee Relief Fund to provide financial support to restaurant workers in need.

 

It is our mission to build and promote the health and prosperity of the restaurant industry by investing in our workforce. 

 

 

The IRAEF is a non-profit organization 501 (c) (3) created to prepare Illinois' hospitality workforce through career exploration, professional development, industry training, and scholarships. We have expanded our efforts to ensure a strong future for the restaurant community. The development of industry professionals remains a top priority, and we are proud to support the restaurant workers during this time of crisis. 
 
Funding for the  Restaurant Employee Relief Fund comes from various sources, including personal donations, corporate partnerships, and proceeds from the Go Gourmet Dining and Virtual Event Series. 
 
For any additional questions, please reach out to Kristen Hodges, IRAEF Executive Director, at khodges@illinoisrestaurants.org.
