With coronavirus forcing restaurants to limit service, the food industry is facing a tough time, as are all those who work in it.
But there's a simple and delicious way for you to help: Order takeout. On Tuesday, March 24, treat yourself to a takeout meal from a local or national restaurant as part of the The Great American Takeout movement and encourage others to do the same.
We know you can't order takeout for every meal, but ordering every now and then during this tough time for restaurants allows them to continue bringing in money and keeping people employed. The more people who support restaurants, the better off the industry will be.
A growing group of national and local restaurants are joining the movement, including Panera, Noodles & Company, and Veggie Grill.
Get involved by spreading #TheGreatAmericanTakeout hashtag on social media, pledging to order takeout on March 24, and encouraging people you know to do the same!
