Step Up To The Table Today!

How can I
step up to
the table?

  1. 1

    Purchase gift cards or pick up a meal from your favorite restaurant
  2. 2

    Take a photo or video and share on social media using the hashtag #StepUpToTheTable
  3. 3

    Challenge others by tagging them to Step Up To The Table and join the movement
How Restaurants can participate.

Once your restaurant is registered (above), it will be included in our online directory, featured on the Step Up to the Table page, and you will receive a “Step Up” digital badge for sharing. Anyone interested in buying gift cards for your restaurant can then search the directory or the page to find your business and buy gift cards on your website.

Who is Behind Step up to the Table?
  • The concept was inspired by Helen Lao at #HelenOntheMove and her team at ClearPath Solutions to give back to the restaurant industry that has given so much to them.
  • Passionate restaurant industry supporters across the U.S. who are sharing their networks and leveraging their platforms to promote Step Up to the Table.
  • These supporters are acting as ambassadors for the industry, challenging one another to promote the initiative.

I was challenged to #stepuptothetable from the awesome team at ClearPath . Every day this week I committed to eat at or purchase gift cards from some of my favs!

I was blessed to be asked to participate and will always appreciate Helen Lao for including me... Not to mention introducing me to Kitchen Social where I double dipped with a meal and gift cards.

I challenged friends, family to help save the restaurant industry and its millions of employees through the simple task of purchasing a meal, gifting a gift card, or sharing on social media. Thank you Helen Lao!
