We Are ACF United

As the culinary industry adapts to the impact from COVID-19, the ACF is here to assist culinary professionals through this tough time.

Membership Renewal Assistance

We understand that some of our members may be under financial hardship due to the pandemic. If that is the case, and you are not able to renew at this time, we will defer your membership. Please call us so your member benefits remain uninterrupted by calling us at 800-924-9458 (ext. 504), or by e-mail at membership@acfchefs.net.

If you are able to renew we ask that you do so. It is your membership that enables ACF to continuing serving its members.
