Eat Out has also implemented a dedicated page, Beyond Lockdown, that aims to help support restaurants financially. We invite diners who would have gone out to eat to offer some of that money to the restaurants. This can be done via GoFundMe, or funds can be pledged to individual staff members through BackaBuddy. Please visit it to help our industry.
