Cooking & Conversations

Tomorrow, Sunday May 31, 2020

Just as frontline healthcare workers appear to turn a corner during this harrowing time, 

our country is facing an urgent community hunger crisis, astronomical in scale.

We are raising an additional $1.5M to serve as many meals to food insecure populations as we can during this time.

Rallying around our neighbors in need

Off Their Plate provides an economic lifeline to COVID-impacted restaurants and feeds communities in crisis.

Lend A Hand

In these times of crisis, we are providing economic relief to COVID-impacted restaurant employees and feeding families and individuals facing hunger.

We can do more than stay home. Our work is powered by a coalition of socially-minded restaurant owners, hospital leaders, community organizers, passionate private citizens, and generous donors. If you would like to join our effort or contribute in a creative way, please email hello@offtheirplate.org.
