Become a Member

As a member, you become a part of a diverse network of restaurant workers in the country with access to opportunities and services that will improve your skills and protect you in the workplace.

Given the current high unemployment rates & precariousness of available work, we have a pay-what-you-can membership system. If you’re looking for guidance on how much to contribute, during normal non-pandemic times, the average member contributes $10 per month.

If you are not recently employed in the restaurant industry and would like to contribute to our efforts, consider becoming a donor!
