Thank you to everyone who made the 2019 Grateful Table dinner a smashing success! Together, we raised over $75,000 to support restaurant workers facing a hardship.  

The Grateful Table is a communal dinner celebration to support Restaurants Care, an emergency assistance fund for restaurant workers. The event featured celebrated chefs, live music, a Twilight Reception in the garden, and a dessert bar under the stars.

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.
