Call on Congress to pass the RESTAURANTS Act 

The RESTAURANTS Act is a bill to establish a $120 billion fund for independent restaurants and the 11 million restaurant workers. Toast is actively working with the Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC) to get this bill passed, but we need your help.

Make your voice heard by going to the IRC website and asking your reps for their support to help pass the RESTAURANTS Act. 

Then, share this social post asking your community to take action to save the restaurant industry.

Without federal aid, the pandemic threatens to permanently close 85% of independent restaurants. 11M people risk losing their jobs. It’s time Congress steps up to #SaveRestaurants by passing the RESTAURANTS Act. Share this video and take action now at
