In light of Governor Cooper’s executive order to close bars and dine-in restaurants, I have a question. Well, actually, it was posed by my friend and fellow foodie, Tracy Bush (a/k/a Nutrimom), what will the restaurants do with the food they won’t be able to use?
I know that there will be takeout and delivery orders, but I’m pretty sure that most of the restaurants won’t be overrun with business from that. Which, of course, is a horrible thought. But, since we’re all having to face a new reality right now, let’s just put this on the minds of those who “can.”
I hope they donate to the food banks and other locations like that. Food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, wherever they can. Perhaps employees that will be “laid off” indefinitely?
I don’t want this to be a debate, I’m not even asking for answers. I’m just curious as to what will happen with this.
As always, wash your hands, diligently, and stay safe.
I know other states businesses have donated to food pantries, soup kitchens, etc. and I hope our community can do the same rather than wasting the food. I understand it’s a financial hit to them but being able to use it to help others is priceless. Perhaps consider donating to elderly, nursing homes, etc. where they are already on lockdown?
Would be a great idea and help.
