Ecolab Inc., a global leader in food safety, has partnered with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to support the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF), which will provide financial assistance to U.S. restaurant workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A nationwide fundraising drive for RERF is being led by celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
Through RERF, grants will be made to restaurant industry employees who have decreased wages or lost employment due to the pandemic. One hundred percent of all donations to RERF will go directly to restaurant workers in need.
By providing financial support and raising awareness of the RERF, Ecolab is continuing to support the restaurant industry and its workforce during this difficult time. In addition to Ecolab, other founding partners of the RERF include PepsiCo, Uber Eats, Constellation Brands, Moët Hennessy USA, Cargill, Boston Beer Company, Shift4 Payments, P&G Professional, The Elliot Group, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and the Light Foundation.

These grants will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to availability of funds.
