What To Do With the Food?

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.

  1. 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?
