GREAT AMERICAN TAKEOUT

Today we 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. 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. America’s restaurants need our help! Texas restaurants need our help!
