Utah Tip Challenge is a grassroots fundraising campaign to support restaurant staff with a surprise tip

Posted at 1:30 PM, Sep 14, 2020

Restaurant workers have been disproportionately impacted to the pandemic due to fewer people dining out.

Inspired by a similar initiative in Nashville, Utah Tip Challenge is a weekly grassroots fundraising campaign that began in August to help support restaurant staff with a surprise tip.

100 percent of what is donated each week is given as a gratuity to a different restaurant during a surprise visit.

The reaction and gratitude from staff and owners has been fantastic and emotional.

So far, every restaurant owner has paid it forward -- donated to the following week's challenge.
