Over the last ten years, everyone here at Team FEASTIVAL has admired the resilience and solidarity of Philadelphia’s culinary community. Navigating the recent days and weeks has been a challenge for many across the city, and our small businesses, restaurants, and bars have been hit hard. We are asking ourselves “How do we best support our friends and colleagues who work in and love our restaurants during this time?”

A few action items we can do as a community include:

  • Call our congress members and advocate on behalf of restaurant employees and small businesses
  • Sign the #SavePhillyRestaurants petition compelling elected officials to pass legislation supporting restaurants
  • Buy gift cards to be used at a later date
  • Order pickup or delivery
  • Donate to the employee funds organized by a variety of restaurants and organizations

FEASTIVAL will continue sharing new information as it is available and highlighting the efforts of our colleagues on our digital platforms. Let’s all continue to support one another in ways large and small until we are on the other side of this 💚
