RE:Her is a charitable organization for women-owned restaurants in Los Angeles, created by women who own restaurants in Los Angeles, in response to how COVID-19 has impacted our businesses and our communities. It is the LA forum of Let’s Talk and the creation is inspired by Let’s Talk.
Nine female restaurateurs in Los Angeles formed RE:Her in November 2020. The women set out to unite over 100 women who own restaurants in LA County to participate in 10 Days RE:Her, a 10-day food festival which offered unique collaborations with other female chefs, thematic menus, one-on-one conversations among female industry leaders, and more. The inaugural festival launched on January 21, 2021, the anniversary of the groundbreaking Women’s March, and it represented 10 special days to celebrate and uplift the sisterhood of restaurateurs in LA. To save her restaurants.
Additionally, RE:Her is a 501(c)(3) non-profit fund actively seeking donors and sponsors to support its developing RE:Her Grant Program. RE:Her will pledge to distribute cash grants to women-owned restaurants in Los Angeles County impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
