Although Hurricane Harvey has left the city of Houston, the flooding continues and the devastating aftermath will require a very long and difficult recovery.

The funds currently being collected are going towards people and communities in need and following the guidelines provided by the Houston Food Bank of the most needed items including food and basic supplies; and channeling donations made by chefs and restaurateurs across the country to other relief organizations. Additionally, HOSPITALITY for HOUSTON is coordinating a delivery of non-perishable food and beverage items donated by New York City restaurants, which will be driven down to Houston and distributed locally.

Renowned hospitality professionals who have already joined this initiative include: Joël Robuchon, Jonathan Benno, Will Guidara and Daniel Humm, Carlos Suarez, Steve Hanson and Sean O'Toole.

We are committed to raising at least $25,000 in relief funds through GoFundMe. We are determined to get the Houston community up and running.
