INTRODUCTION TO CORE
Learn more about the direct impact CORE has on food & beverage service industry employees, and how you, or your company, can help.
CORE was founded in 2004 by beverage executives who recognized a need to help employees with children who worked in food and beverage service operations at times of health crises and natural disaster. Since that time, the organization has grown providing assistance in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
CORE provides support in the form of a financial grant when an employee, spouse or child faces a medical crisis, injury, death, or natural disaster. An average grant is almost $2,000 and may cover rent/mortgage, utilities, prescription/ medical equipment costs, funds for basic necessities, childcare, expenses related to a funeral and more. CORE serves as a resource and benefit for operators across the country. Additionally, CORE provides employee engagement opportunities, partnership opportunities and resources for all organizations.

CORE: CHILDREN OF RESTAURANT EMPLOYEES
Life can change in the blink of an eye. CORE is here to serve restaurant employees with children when facing a medical crisis, injury, death, or natural disaster. Your financial support will help provide hope to families when they need it the most. Families like Melanie’s:
Melanie, a single mother of two, has been in the food & beverage business for 12 years. Her daughter started having stomach pains in late June that her doctor said was a stomach bug. After almost a month later, she had dropped down to 34 lbs., and had a fever of over 101 for multiple days. She was rushed to the emergency room and admitted to the specialty children’s hospital where she stayed for 12 days before being eventually diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.
As a result of her daughter’s extended hospital stay, Melanie was forced to miss a lot of work. CORE stepped in and helped with a month’s rent, utilities, groceries, and medication. The CORE financial support affected Melanie’s and her family’s lives immediately. “I don’t know where I would be or what I’d be doing if that (CORE) hadn’t had helped.”
When expressing appreciation to CORE donors, Melanie stated “I want them to know this was a lifesaver. That they impact far more people than they will ever understand, and the eternal gratitude I will have for all of them and CORE as a whole.”
“Because of CORE, I was able to focus on my family, getting my daughter better, work, and be the best mom I could be to her in a time she needed me most.”
83% of CORE grants are for a medical crisis, and medical costs are the #1 reason for bankruptcy in the United States. Please help families like Melanie’s by donating to CORE today.
