Payactiv’s customers include many thousands of low wage workers in the restaurant, health care, hospitality and other industries that have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. The ACCESS Fund will provide relief to workers who have been laid off or have experienced greatly reduced work hours or shifts in these areas.


Restaurants and workers affiliated with the restaurant industry have been heavily impacted by the COVID pandemic. With the current crisis, there are also many homeless and jobless people who are in need of support, and do not have sufficient resources to buy healthy food. In partnership with Plate IQ, the Payactiv ACCESS Foundation’s Gift-a-Plate Fund will to allow donors to support restaurants while simultaneously supporting those in need of food. Donations to this fund will be used to buy prepared meals in bulk from participating restaurants, which will be delivered to participating charitable organizations, such as homeless shelters.

100% of your donation, less any processing costs, will be used to fund charitable contributions to help vulnerable people affected by COVID-19 in the United States.
