Small Business Grants & Loans

Rally for Restaurants
Your favorite restaurants are suffering as a result of the COVID-19 health crisis. Sales are down across the country, and jobs are at risk. You can help. Support your local restaurant and order takeout, buy a gift card, or rally your government officials to take action so local restaurants have a chance to survive.

Rally for Restaurants is a free, online platform that allows customers to buy gift cards or order online from their favorite local restaurant. There are currently over 100 restaurants in the area, including some in Los Gatos, listed on the platform. We’d love your help spreading the word!
How to support your local restaurant on Rally for Restaurants:
  • Visit the website below and search by zip code.
  • You can order takeout or buy a gift card directly from the Rally for Restaurants platform.
How to sign up as a restaurant: 
  • Click Here to add your restaurant to the platform. Your entry should be live 48 hours after your submission. 
  • You can also submit multiple restaurants by emailing a CSV file. 
  • You do not have to be a Toast customer in order to be listed, but if you are looking for a point-of-sale system for gift cards, Toast is offering their software free for 3 months.
