The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has brought upon the restaurant industry a challenge of catastrophic magnitude. The Texas Restaurant Association has been fighting daily to support the evolving needs of the more than 50,000 restaurants throughout the State of Texas and the 1.4 million workers they employ.
To respond to this immediate financial need we have established the TX RESTAURANT RELIEF FUND through the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on the education and development of Texas’ restaurant industry workforce.
The mission of the TX Restaurant Relief Fund (TRRF) is:
TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE FINANCIAL RELIEF TO TEXAS' INDEPENDENT RESTAURATEURS
WITH FUNDS DESIGNED TO SAVE EMPLOYEE JOBS.
We need to get money into their hands today, and so have set out to raise a minimum of $10 million to support as many of Texas’ independently owned restaurants as possible. Thank you to all those who have donated. Visit our Gratitude Wall here.

Donate to Those in Need
Funds received will help keep independently owned restaurants open and their workers employed. As restaurants await relief from the government through the stimulus package and navigate the application process for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Economic Injury disaster loans, they are fighting for their survival.
