Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, businesses have been hit harder than ever.

On March 24, the restaurant industry is asking the community to commit to eat one takeout/delivery meal in hopes to raise awareness of the difficulties the restaurant industry can face.

To participate in The Great American Takeout, consumers are asked to:

Post on social media in advance of the event, encouraging friends and followers to take part with the Hashtag #TheGreatAmericanTakeout.
Engage friends, family and colleagues to support their local restaurants by ordering takeout meals.
Order delivery or pick-up for at least one meal on Tuesday, sharing photos on social media and tagging them with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout.
