The entire culinary industry had the rug pulled out from underneath it in just a matter of days. With our entire state on quarantine due to the Coronavirus pandemic, restaurants are pivoting to delivery and takeout only models or shutting down altogether. Luckily there are plenty of restaurants and delivery services that are staying open to feed the people in these, the strangest of times.
While we’re all practicing social distancing (don’t be selfish, stay home as much as humanly possible), it’s still vital for our sanity and economy that we get out of the house and support our favorite local businesses. It’s still up in the air what will be included in the federal government’s final stimulus package, but make sure you let your state representatives know small business shouldn’t be forgotten.
