Restaurant Strong Fund

The Greg Hill Foundation has teamed up with Samuel Adams* to support those from the Massachusetts restaurant industry who have been impacted by the Covid-19 closures. Together, and with the insights of notable Boston-area chefs Ming Tsai (Blue Dragon), Ken Oringer (Little Donkey) and Chris Coombs (Boston Chops), we will be raising awareness and funds to provide grants to full-time restaurant workers in Massachusetts who are dependent on wages plus tips to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families.


Our goal is to provide $1,000 grants to as many qualifying grantees as possible. Sam Adams is kickstarting the Restaurant Strong Fund with a donation of $100,000 and a commitment to match donations through 3/31 up to an additional $100,000. We are asking for those who are able, to consider making a donation to support the thousands of individuals and families that need financial help during this time. Our goal is to help as many people as we can. Help us Help Others by making a donation today!
