Important Industry Awards from NRAEF -- Faces of Diversity and Restaurant Neighbor Awards

September 20, 2017

Restaurant Neighbor Award 

We all know that restaurants demonstrate an unwavering commitment to their communities in good times and bad and are often the first to reach out in times of need.  The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation recognizes those restaurants that give back to their communities through the Restaurant Neighbor Award. Every year, three restaurants…a small business, a mid-size restaurant company and a large/national chain each receive $5,000 to support a favorite charity or community project.

The restaurant and foodservice industry is one of the most diverse in the United States.  The industry celebrates our varied cultures and backgrounds through the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation Faces of Diversity Awards program.  The award honors individuals in the restaurant industry who have realized the American Dream through hard work, determination and enterprise.
