Ocean Spray Restaurant Community Fund
As a cooperative, Ocean Spray farmers know the importance of building and feeding communities just like local independent restaurants. Restaurants are the backbone of neighborhoods across our commonwealth and right now they need us. We know that by coming together, we can do amazing things! It is with that in mind, that we are teaming up with COREcares to support Massachusetts independent restaurants on their road to recovery. Join us in our support!
Funds Raised to Date
Our goal is to provide grants to as many qualifying independent restaurants as possible to help support the Massachusetts restaurant industry cover rent, utilities, and payroll costs. Ocean Spray is kickstarting the Ocean Spray Restaurant Community Fund with a contribution of $75,000 and will match up to an additional $25,000. If you are able, please join us in supporting our local restaurants. 100% of the funds raised go directly to Massachusetts restaurant operators, so the more we raise, the more restaurants we can help.
