Children of Restaurant Employees is a national non-profit and direct provider that is dedicated to serving food and beverage operations employees with children to provide financial relief when either the employee, spouse or their child faces a life-altering health crisis, injury, death or natural disaster.
Making a difference in the lives of families is our passion.
CORE was founded in 2004 by beverage executives who saw a need to help food and beverage industry workers and their families in times of great health or personal crises.
Through financial grants support can be provided to an employee, their spouse or child who may be facing a medical crisis, injury, death or natural disaster. Grants can help cover any number of expenses.
CORE is made up of a network of corporate partners, donors, sponsors, volunteers and brand ambassadors who lend their voices to creating awareness around restaurant families facing life-altering health crisis, injury, death or natural disaster. CORE works with various organizations to create meaningful and lasting programs in support of this mission.
Let's Give HOPE
“ None of us know when a tragedy will strike us, or a family member. With CORE, we now can provide our Team Members with financial assistance for qualifying circumstances, so they won’t have to face this life changing event alone. ”
- Tom Sacco - Chief Happiness Officer, CEO & President
We are honored to partner with CORE: Children of Restaurant Employees in raising funds to help employees with children in the food and beverage industry who face a medical crisis, natural disaster or death.
