The Partners of Restaurant Strong

There are more than 1 million restaurants in the U.S., home to more than 15 million employees nationwide who are especially vulnerable to the effects of Covid-19 closures.

Initially unveiled in Massachusetts on March 18th on the heels of mandated Covid-19 closures in Boston, the original Restaurant Strong Fund raised nearly $500,000 from 2,000 individual donors in its first week, with support from athletes David Ortiz to Jimmy Develin and chefs Ming Tsai, Chris Coombs and Ken Oringer. Samuel Adams and The Greg Hill Foundation quickly realized the need was widespread and desire to support was even stronger.

In more recent grant cycles, The Restaurant Strong Fund has focused on supporting small business restaurants in providing opportunities that impact revenue growth and giving areas. The Restaurant Strong Fund remains committed to making a positive impact in the communities it operates in to restore the vibrancy and resilience in various remarkable cities in the United States.

Formed by Greg Hill in June of 2010, The Greg Hill Foundation has donated over $27,000,000 to 9,813 beneficiaries and continues to support those in need.
