Our Story

Hospitality Employee Assistance Fund

Many hospitality workers in NM have multiple jobs and very little savings so when hardship falls upon them they fall behind. Seeing this situation the industry came together and established this fund to grant employees funds when they need financial assistance.


Food operations joining the Serving NM Fund will give employees access to funds needed for unanticipated hardships.
