Our Restaurants need us! The Governor announced that restaurants will be limited to carry out and drive through only. We have published a fairly comprehensive list of all our area restaurants and food providers which you can find here. Their details include phone numbers and whether they have a carry out option. Even if your favorite doesn’t have carry out listed, call anyway to make sure. You can also purchase gift cards where available, your favorite restaurant will appreciate the income and when the time comes, you can celebrate the end of corona with dinner!
Consider joining LABI’s #giftcardchallenge, which is encouraging employers to sponsor gift cards to local establishments for their employees. Get food from a Central Restaurant instead of cooking at home. Our restaurants need us now more than ever!
