Our Story

The Serving New Mexico Fund is administered by the Hospitality Industry Education Fund (HIEF).  HIEF is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Many hospitality workers in NM have multiple jobs and very little savings so when hardship falls upon them they fall behind. In these trying times we want to do as much as we can for displaced restaurant employees in NM.

This fund will allow NM’s dedicated hospitality workers to apply for small grants to help them get by until this emergency is over.

What’s Next?

Food operations in New Mexico should refer employees to the fund for unanticipated hardships.

For those looking to support our hospitality heroes, your generous donations are crucial. By contributing to the Serving New Mexico Fund, you can directly aid the restaurant workers who serve our community every day. Every dollar makes a difference in helping them recover and return to their jobs.
