Mendocino Farms ran a pilot campaign for Restaurants Care in the spring. Guests were given the opportunity to add $1, $5, or $10 to their orders. They raised over $40,000 during a multi-week campaign! Their guests wanted an outlet to support local relief efforts. Plus, they boosted team morale by demonstrating their commitment to supporting restaurant workers.

“We received many more donations than expected and were amazed at how positively our Mendo guests responded to the call-for-help at the peak of the pandemic. I think our team and community felt good knowing that we were doing our part to help give back to the restaurant community during a difficult time. We also shared the grant resources to team members alongside the guest-facing campaign, which made the partnership with Restaurants Care feel even more impactful, tangible, and close-to-home.”
