National Restaurant Association suggests Red Cross, InterAction to support relief efforts in Japan

Restaurants are the cornerstones of their communities, and often among the first to respond when tragedy strikes. Last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan prompted many restaurants and chefs in the United States to spring into action and help those affected by the disaster.

If you want to get involved and provide support to relief efforts in Japan, we suggest the following ways:

Donations to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) will support the Japanese Red Cross Society disaster relief efforts. Funds will be utilized for the on-going provision of immediate relief and eventual recovery support to the affected population. To make a donation, visit the IFRC website. You can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to disaster relief in Japan.

The Department of State and the USAID Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance are directing the public to support InterAction, which is the largest alliance of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) focused on international disaster relief and development programs. InterAction member organizations are deploying response teams and have strong partnerships with civil society groups in Japan. For a list of organizations involved, visit the InterAction website

If you prefer to find your own charity to engage with, consider these giving tips from Charity Navigator to ensure your contributions are put to good use.

To share what your restaurant is doing, e-mail our Senior Director of Community Relations Alyssa Prince.
