We thought this campaign was behind us, but sadly we find our restaurants closed for indoor dining once again. They need our support like never before. See below and please #TakeOuttoHelpOut.
Did you know that Burlington has over 400 restaurants offering a variety of delicious food options for all tastes and budgets? These businesses have appreciated the patronage of locals through restrictions and are asking you to continue this support through take out, gift cards and take out options.
In an effort to encourage residents to continue this important support for restaurants, the Taste of Burlington is launching the Take Out to Help Out campaign via social media. Diners are encouraged to post pictures of themselves getting take-out or of their take-out meal and post on social media using #TakeOuttoHelpOut. Taste of Burlington will be giving away restaurant gift cards randomly each week to social media users who post using the hashtag.
Kelly Harris, Marketing Manager at Tourism Burlington and Coordinator of the Taste of Burlington program states: “In the first phase of the pandemic we sadly saw some of our local restaurants close. Our restaurants need our continued support now more than ever to ensure your favorite spot keeps their doors open. If you are able, please get take-out, as often as you can, to help our restaurants through this difficult time”.
We are also asking people when they order take out to pick up directly from the restaurants to avoid the use of third party delivery companies.
Thanks for your support and Bon Appetit Burlington!
