Support Food & Beverage Workers in Need

Southern Smoke Foundation supports members of the food and beverage (F+B) industry nationwide through emergency relief funding and access to mental health services.

With your support, we can continue to pay for essentials like groceries, clothing, and rent, as well as cover the cost of life-saving medications, natural disaster damages, lost wages, and more for F+B workers who need it most. Your support also allows us to continue to evolve and expand our mental health program to F+B workers in California, Illinois, Louisiana, New York, and Texas—with the goal of providing services in all fifty states!

Thanks to generous donors like you, we have granted more than $11M to F+B workers in crisis since 2017. In addition, we launched our mental health program, Behind You, in August 2020 and have funded over 3,600 no-cost counseling sessions for F+B workers in several states through university clinic grants.

We are both founded and fueled by leadership who deeply understand the unique stressors and dynamics of the F+B industry, and we encourage you to join us in serving those who are always there to serve us.
