keeping people working; keeping us happily fed and watered, week three

Lots of new offerings on the alphabetical list. If you don’t see your favourite resto listed below, call them to see if they are doing take-out. Check out the news about bakeries, meat shops, wine shops and grocery stores too.

Keep in mind it’s not business as usual—perhaps the whole menu isn’t available, or, take-out/pick-up is restricted to a certain time frame or day.

One more thing, please don’t use a gift card to pay. These small businesses need take-out activity to try to survive. Save the gc for happier times.
