Giving Back to Our Own

Illness. Injury. Family Death. If you’re a food and beverage service employee with children, CORE can help. CORE grants support to children of food and beverage service employees navigating life-altering circumstances. In times of extreme strain brought on by family death, injury or diagnosed medical condition, loss of home, or other sudden or extreme circumstances, food and beverage families can become overwhelmed financially and emotionally. CORE is the nationally recognized community of support for all food and beverage service families in need by ensuring they feel cared for and valued.

A Message from CORE

2019 is CORE's 15th year helping children whose parents and families are employed in the food and beverage service industry. With the unwavering support of our COREporate sponsors, Board of Directors, Advisory Council and Ambassadors, hundreds of families are given a hand-up during difficult times. I welcome you to explore our website, read the heart-touching stories of our families and discover how you can become a part of serving the industry that serves us. Welcome to CORE!

Laren LaViolaDEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

Families are at the heart of all we do at CORE. We at CORE are extraordinarily grateful to our COREporate Sponsors, Ambassadors, and Advisory Council members who enable us to offer a helping hand to a hospitality service employee whose family is facing a life
altering event. At CORE we essentially turn the table and serve those who serve us every day. Making a difference in the lives of these families is my passion.

Host a CORE Event or Promotion

Hosting an event or promotion for CORE—at any establishment or venue—is an easy, fun way to donate. Your company can either do a one-time fundraiser that benefits CORE, such as a dinner and product tasting, or an on-going promotion that helps spread awareness and raise funds for our mission year round. Plus, ask us about our Build-A-Bear stuffing parties! Not a food and beverage establishment? Not a problem! CORE is committed to finding ways to partner with any organization–from schools and clubs to grocery stores and beyond.
