The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) is proud to announce its participation in the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership, connecting military spouses with more than 390 partner employers who have committed to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers.

WASHINGTON, DC – October 26, 2018 – The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) is proud to announce its participation in the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership, connecting military spouses with more than 390 partner employers who have committed to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses in portable careers.
 
The NRAEF officially joined the partnership on Oct. 16, 2018, at the annual Induction Ceremony held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Va. The partnership launched on June 29, 2011 to serve spouses from all military services and focus on reducing unemployment for military spouses and veterans.
 
“We are thrilled to support those who currently serve, those who are veterans and, now through this partnership, military spouses,” said Rob Gifford, executive vice president of the NRAEF. “This is another win to support military members and their families in transitioning into our industry and providing them with pathways to advance into long-term careers.”
 
The restaurant industry currently employs 238,000 veterans. By joining the Military Spouse Employment Partnership, the Foundation will become part of an even larger collective effort to support military spouse employment.
 
The Foundation’s military program seeks to help currently serving military, their families and all veterans transition into careers in our industry, bridging the gap between those serving our country and entering the workforce to reduce veteran unemployment. The Foundation also recognizes excellence in military foodservice at installations around the world through its annual Military Foodservice Awards.
