What We Do

We are cooking up stronger communities in California, empowering young people with the skills they need to land a job and go to college, and providing restaurant employees with financial assistance and peace of mind during an unforeseen crisis.

Our Three Pillars

Youth Programs

Each year, we empower 13,500 high school students in California through job-training, hands-on learning, and mentors.   


In 2019, we awarded over $90,000 in scholarships to students majoring in hospitality or culinary arts. 

Restaurants Care (emergency grants)

When a restaurant worker is in need, we can provide one-time emergency assistance to get them through the crisis.
