Whether filling the pantries of families in need, cooking up a hot meal for a dedicated healthcare worker, or providing care for our four-legged companions, organizations across the country are helping folks affected by the current global pandemic, and Tito’s is lending a hand.
We’ve donated over $3.7 million to local nonprofits in communities across the US to help with COVID-19 relief efforts. Below are just a few examples of the nonprofits we've been able to support so far. We’re also donating additional funds to national service industry nonprofits, vaccine research, pandemic modeling, and ventilator development efforts, as well as producing and donating hand sanitizer.
Sharing a Fresh Meal with Frontline FoodsLearn More
Frontline Foods is on a mission to provide fresh meals from local restaurants to frontline workers. Tito’s is working with this volunteer-led organization to distribute nearly 10,000 meals and counting in 24 markets across the country. Frontline Foods is not only feeding essential workers, but also supporting local restaurants within our communities.
Finding a Hot Meal Can be Taken “Off Their Plate”Learn More
Off Their Plate, a grassroots-movement-turned-nonprofit, is removing mealtime stress for dedicated healthcare workers across the country while providing significant support to local restaurants along the way. With the help of Tito’s, 4,250 delicious, locally-sourced meals are being distributed to hospitals in Boston, Pittsburgh, New York City, Philadelphia, D.C., and Los Angeles, to feed folks working day and night.
Dinner’s on the Table with the Great Grocery GivebackLearn More
The Great Grocery Giveback, with support from sponsors like Tito’s, is providing a full week’s worth of groceries to those furloughed or laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of a kickoff donation from Tito’s, nearly 400 families received groceries in the first week alone. After Tito’s donation, other sponsors and individual donors have jumped in to donate and help even more families each week.
Offering a Seat at the Big TableLearn More
Big Table’s mission is to support hospitality and industry workers in Seattle, Spokane, and San Diego who are in in need, especially those who have been impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic. With a $70,000 donation from Tito’s, Big Table can continue these efforts while inspiring others to get involved and help out within the communities they serve.
Supporting our Friends with the Restaurant Workers’ Community FundLearn More
The Restaurant Workers’ Community Fund strives to help both restaurants and their staffs navigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. With some support from Tito’s — a $10,000 donation and a campaign to spread awareness of the fund among New York City’s hospitality industry — the Restaurant Workers’ Community Fund is able to provide direct relief to impacted restaurant staff along with zero-interest loans to help restaurants get back on their feet.
Order Local and Feed It ForwardLearn More
Providing meals to people in need, supporting local restaurants in Austin, and engaging community members near and far – are the core pillars of Austin Restaurant Weeks’ Feed It Forward initiative. By ordering delivery, pickup, groceries, or alcohol from establishments participating in the Feed It Forward movement, Austin residents can provide up to 20 meals per order to those currently impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, all while supporting their favorite spots.

Plus, Tito’s is matching donations up to $10,000 to keep this community-wide initiative moving forward.
Lending a Paw with Vodka for Dog PeopleLearn More
As always, our Vodka for Dog People program is actively supporting animal-related nonprofits throughout the country.
