Response to Covid-19 shutdown - Buy food online and support small businesses
In these unprecedented times, no person or business could have been prepared. As a people we Irish are wonderful to support each other. Never before has it been so important to support small businesses. Every 24 hours we are innovating to survive and adapting to the market environment. We are continuing to bring to our customers by any means possible, within the new health and safety guidelines, the great local food produce and cuisine that we are committed to everyday.
Our bars are closed, many of our restaurants, cafes and hotels are also closed, there business is gone and their food is going to waste! Where ever possible those in need are being offered food from stock and storage through the wonderful Meals on Wheels service. The knock-on effect is that our small Food Producers Members have also lost most of their sales.
BUT we are all hitting the ground running, seeking out business recovery strategies, within our means to help support each other. So here is a list we have compiled of our Members that are selling their amazing food produce online and having it delivered to your home, keeping you safe with your family. It is by no means definitive; we'll be adding to it daily.
We have also compiled a List of our Members offering contactless Takeaway Food. In most cases this is unprecedented, these are delicious Restaurant and Cafe Menus now available for you to buy and take home. Many are offering home deliveries or you can call to the Restaurant and Collect. Some other Restaurants and small Food Shops have set up Pop Up stores outside to comply with Social Distancing. Here is our List.
