Nationwide Government Contacts

Because the restaurant industry is made up of small and medium sized businesses, we don't have the same lobbying power and influence with the government as large corporations. Therefore, our voice isn't heard and we depend on members our community to sign the petitions and make the calls & emails to elected officials for help. Below are ways you can reach elected officials and tell them about the desperate plight the restaurant and hospitality industry is in and ask for help for the millions of people now in need.

Save the Food Supply Chain (Petition)
A plea for help from the federal government that could save the restaurant and food service industry.

Tell Congress to Support Restaurants and Our Employees! (Petition)
