#TakeoutDay Launches to Help Save Restaurants Amidst COVID-19 Crisis


TORONTO — To help support the Canadian foodservice industry, several hundred restaurant owners, chefs, culinary leaders and celebrities across the country have joined forces to support national #TakeoutDay today. Canadians are encouraged to make every Wednesday #TakeoutDay by ordering from their favourite local restaurant.

Hundreds of Canada’s favourite food personalities — including chef Vikram Vij, maître fromager Afrim Pristine and chef Connie DeSousa — are encouraging Canadians to share this campaign across social media with #TakeoutDay.

“There’s never been a time like this, never been a bigger challenge for the restaurant industry. The greatest thing you can do is on April 15, support your local restaurant by doing takeout,” says Mark McEwan, chef restaurateur, who also created this video.
