How To Support Restaurants Through COVID-19
As you’ve probably seen on the news, one of the hardest hit industries right now is the restaurant business. Restaurants throughout Los Angeles County have helped support us throughout the years at White Light White Night, so we reached out to all of our partners recently to see how we could return the favor and try to support them right now. Here’s a breakdown of ways you can support our restaurants through this pandemic.
- Reach Out To Your Government
The California Restaurant Coalition has started the #TooSmallToFail campaign to #SaveHospitality asking California Governor Newsom for some direct support to keep small restaurants from complete shut down during this crisis. Share these social media assets on your feed to keep the movement alive. Or, better yet, call your local representative to ask about what they are doing to help keep restaurants afloat.
2. Participate in The Great American Takeout
There are still quite a few restaurants offering take-out and delivery options. Some are even getting creative by offering up new “Family Meals” and some that you can take with you to make on your own. Keep reading for a full list of our partners and what they are currently offering.
3. Grab a gift card
The hardest part for restaurants right now, is the drastic reduction in cash flow due to the Stay Home initiative. To help them through this tough time, grab a gift card to use as soon as everything starts to improve. Now’s a great time to plan ahead for Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and any spring birthdays.
Whatever you’re in the mood for, we hope you’ll join us in supporting our community restaurants!
