Mark Allen, President & CEO of the International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA), the industry that ensures a safe and efficient supply of food to more than one million restaurants and professional kitchens in the U.S., issued a statement in support of the Reviving the Economy Sustainably Towards a Recovery in Twenty-twenty (RESTART) Act to support the businesses most affected by the coronavirus crisis.
 
“Thank you to U.S. Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) for their commitment to and support of businesses hardest-hit by this global pandemic. The foodservice industry and its supply chain have been devastated by the shutdown. The RESTART Act answers our calls to Congress by focusing on measures designed to provide longer term support for the hardest-hit businesses by providing significant additional access to capital. Even as restaurants open their doors, they face many challenges and limited capacity. They will need additional support to survive this crisis and the RESTART Act puts the foodservice distribution industry in a better place as we face the long road to recovery."
