In the face of the many challenges (loss of income, salaries and wages, health insurance,
food waste, etc.) facing our amazing restaurants, there are a variety of ways Austinites can support
these local businesses.
GET DELIVERY OR CURBSIDE PICKUP
FROM A LOCAL SPOT
In order to stay open while also curbing the spread of COVID-19, these restaurants now offer new to-go and curbside pickup options.
BUY A GIFT CARD AND USE IT THE FUTURE
This gives restaurants some cash flow that can help them weather this time, and you’ll have a reason to go out and celebrate when it’s safe to go out again.
BUY RESTAURANT MERCH
From pearl-snap shirts to metal bat sculptures; floating koozies to watermelon fanny packs, Austin restaurants have an eclectic mix of goods for all personal tastes.
SUPPORT A LOCAL RELIEF FUND
The suspension of dine-in restaurants combined with the cancelation of SXSW means local spots have been hit hard. Here are big and small ways to help keep Austin restaurants, bars, and food trucks going.
