BECOME AN AMBASSADOR.
CORE relies on volunteers nationwide to serve as an ambassador and increase awareness and visibility of this organization. This is a great way to directly help restaurant industry families who may qualify for a CORE grant when life does not go as planned and they face a qualifying circumstance.
Ambassadors help in a variety of ways:
- Volunteer for CORE at industry events
- Leverage their voice on social media and throughout their professional network
- Distribute CORE back of the house posters in local neighborhoods or in underserved communities
- Host fundraisers to benefit CORE
- Refer F&B operations employees with children to apply for a grant, who face a health crisis, injury, death, or natural disaster
- Serve as an industry leader
