Senator Leahy receives Congressional Leadership Award from National Restaurant Association

first_imgThe Vermont Chamber Hospitality Council is pleased that the National Restaurant Association (NRA) presented its first annual Congressional Leadership Award to U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) in recognition of his efforts to fight hunger. “Senator Leahy’s contribution is meaningful to the restaurant industry because it helps our dining employers be good citizens while freeing up resources to invest in their businesses and their employees, said Vicky Tebbetts, Vice President of the Vermont Hospitality Council. “A vibrant dining industry is critical to Vermont’s tourism economy.”The National Restaurant Association created the Congressional Leadership Award to recognize members of Congress who advocate on behalf of important restaurant industry causes and support legislation that help the industry to sustain its role as a job creator, a career training ground, and a cornerstone of the community. “Vermonters have always valued the importance of taking care of their neighbors,” said Senator Patrick Leahy.  “I’m proud to accept this award on behalf of all of Vermont restaurants, businesses, food banks, and community groups that lend a hand to their neighbors in need each and every day.”Leahy is a founding member of the Senate Hunger Caucus, a group seeking bipartisan solutions to end hunger in the U.S. and around the world. Leahy is also a sponsor of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Extension Act, a bill that would advocate for the 36 million Americans at risk of hunger, and help more restaurants take advantage of a tax deduction for food donations and reduce food waste.last_img read more
