Support your local: #EatAloneTogether

8th May 2020 | Eativity editors

From the high-end, hatted restaurants to your local cafe, dine-in services across Australia have been impacted by COVID-19. A new campaign encouraging people to #EatAloneTogether has been launched by Restaurant & Catering Australia, in partnership with some of the country’s most high-profile food industry personalities. The campaign aims to inspire Australians to continue ordering takeaway or dine-in meals from local restaurants, cafes, eateries and artisan food producers.

Restaurant & Catering Australia is the peak industry association representing over 47,000 restaurants, cafes and caterers across the country. Their campaign calls on Australians to order from their favourite food service venues and share a meal online, using the hashtag #EatAloneTogether. This way, people can continue to share meals together, celebrate great food and support their local eateries at the same time.

Keep your favourite kitchen busy.

Australian Pork’s Marketing Manager Mitch Edwards is part of the campaign and says it was a no-brainer to get involved: “This is a really difficult period for our industry but this campaign seeks to get Australians supporting their local restaurants,” he says. “I encourage people to treat themselves tonight, encourage their friends to do the same and order in to support our foodservice industry.”

#EatAloneTogether is about celebrating togetherness with food while supporting your local restaurant, cafe or eatery. The call from Restaurant & Catering Australia – along with some of its most high-profile chefs, restaurateurs and entertainment personalities, including Matt Moran, Neil Perry and Maggie Beer – is to continue to enjoy delicious food, and only together will we help our favourite local culinary business survive.

So why not do your bit and order in tonight? Then snap a photo of your meal and share your post on Instagram with the hashtag #EatAloneTogether.
