Our friends at Toronto Restaurants have launched a new campaign to help supporting the struggling restaurant industry in Ontario’s biggest city.
According to Stephanie Dickison, the curator/mastermind/amazing human behind Toronto Restaurants:
“It’s been an overwhelming three weeks for everyone, including the hospitality industry. Places shuttered while others launched new takeout and delivery options. Some businesses that previously closed are back with new options and formats. In a matter of days, various bars and restaurants transformed into boutique wine shops, grocery stores, and neighbourhood bodegas, while new grocers and food shops debuted to help meet demand.
It’s impossible to keep up-to-date with who’s doing what right now, because IT. CHANGES. EVERY. DAY.
Radio stations and online businesses have been offering free ad space for restaurants, which is great, but you have to be listening to that station or be on that platform or site. News outlets and blogs are running lists of certain restaurants offering takeout and/or delivery, but it excludes everyone else. Many diners are relying on delivery apps, but it still represents only a portion of businesses offering takeout and delivery, as not everyone can afford the high fees they charge.
So I’m launching the #TAKEOUTTORONTO and #DELIVERYTORONTO project, inspired by similar campaigns happening across the globe, to bring everyone together in one place.
If you’re a restaurant, bar, brewery, bakery, cafe, or food shop offering takeout and/or delivery, use these hashtags across your social media platforms so diners can search for options without having to go to an app or try to keep up with their feeds right now.
Show your support and share this post with everyone and anyone. Spread the word. Help keep our local foodservice businesses open. Hopefully soon, we’ll be able to see everyone doing takeout and delivery across Toronto and the GTA in one place. ”
