Demand for talent is high with restaurant employment 4.5 percent below pre-pandemic levels. In fact, the National Restaurant Association reports that 65 percent of restaurant operators say they do not have enough staff to meet customer demand, indicating an immediate need to build a sustainable restaurant workforce.


The NRAEF offers a variety of programs to empower and advance restaurant workers and attract people from all backgrounds to the industry. Programs include:


ProStart® – A high-school career and technical education program

Restaurant Ready/HOPES – Partnering with community-based organizations to provide people with skills training and job opportunities

Scholarships – Financial assistance for students pursuing restaurant, foodservice, and hospitality degrees

Restaurant & Hospitality Leadership Center – Accredited apprenticeship programs designed to build the careers of service professionals

Military – Helping military servicemen and women transition their skills to restaurant and foodservice careers
