WASHINGTON, DC – November 28, 2017 –  Today, the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) is pleased to announce it’s first-ever Giving Tuesday campaign.
 
With any donation, large or small, supporters of the NRAEF can help attract a new generation of talent and create opportunities for millions of people passionate about the restaurant and foodservice industry.

Donations from supporters at any level will make an impact on the people the Foundation serves – military service members and their families, high school students passionate about restaurants and foodservice, disconnected youth, current employees in the restaurant industry and more.

“As the season of giving begins, we want to continue to feed dreams and build futures for those interested in or currently working in this industry,” said Rob Gifford, executive vice president of the NRAEF. “This holiday season, we hope friends of the Foundation will consider giving back so that we can continue to attract, empower and advance our future workforce.”

“Every day I see my passion for the industry growing,” said Giselle Lomas, an alumna of the NRAEF’s ProStart program and a 2017 scholarship recipient attending Texas State Technical College. “I want to pursue my degree so that I can offer my skills to others, assist with my family business, express my passion for food and cooking and be a strong voice for the industry.”
