To support restaurants offering takeout, curbside pick-up, and no-contact delivery, a statewide promotion called “Virginia is for Restaurant Lovers Takeout Week” is planned starting Monday.
The promotion — which is being organized by the Virginia Tourism Corporation and the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association — hopes to inspire Virginia residents to help their favorite local restaurants weather the storm of the COVID-19 viral outbreak. Residents are challenged to order takeout from at least three area restaurants during the week of March 30-April 5.
Participating partners and local personalities should use the hashtag #VirginiaEatsLocal when posting on social media.
A new website called fxbglovelocal.com was just created that will help Fredericksburg residents choose which local restaurants to support next week and beyond.
