For more than 25 years, the NRAEF awards program has recognized the top philanthropists, community leaders, and educators in the restaurant and foodservice industry. The NRAEF is seeking candidates who embody its mission of strengthening and growing the industry through education, community engagement and promotion of career opportunities. Candidates for each award must demonstrate an outstanding commitment to education and excellence within the restaurant and foodservice industry. The three awards—the College of Diplomats, the Michael E. Hurst Lifetime Achievement in Education Award, and the Thad and Alice Eure Ambassador of Hospitality Award—are more fully detailed at

Submissions can be made online, mailed or faxed to 312/566-9733. The nomination deadline is August 31. For more information, contact Jennifer Swain at or 312/715-6751.
