Return of the Great American Takeout

Organizers behind last week’s inaugural #TheGreatAmericanTakeout are going back for seconds on Tuesday, March 31st.

The coronavirus poses a significant threat to the future of an industry that employs more than 15 million Americans. That’s why a coalition of restaurants is asking for help.  

On March 31, they are asking everyone in America to show their support for the restaurant industry by joining #TheGreatAmericanTakeout and eating at least one delivery or pick-up meal.

For every social post tagged with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout, Ventura Foods will donate $5 (up to $25,000) to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF), created to support U.S. restaurant workers financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and to provide aid to restaurant employees nationwide.

For every social post tagged with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout, Smithfield Foods will make a $5 donation (up to $50,000) to CORE™: Children Of Restaurant Employees, a national nonprofit dedicated to assisting food and beverage service employees with children facing a health crisis or natural disaster and in need of financial support.
