We're teaming up with local businesses to build resilience
As you know, COVID-19 has hit the hospitality industry hard. Within two weeks, hundreds of consumer-facing local businesses have had to reduce offerings to mere necessities or close altogether.
Yes, there is a lot to be morose about.
But there is a lot to be hopeful about too.
For perhaps the first time in history, business, government and citizens around the globe are working together to build resilience in times of unprecedented uncertainty. And then there are the small heart-warming stories as well:
A few days ago, a boy in Palmyra, Perth had his birthday. He couldn’t have a party. So, his friends’ and his friends’ parents drove around his neighbourhood with balloons, singing Happy Birthday.
In Ireland, the hashtag #SelfIsolationHelp is doing the rounds, which people began using to offer assistance to people who are vulnerable or self-isolating.
Italian people in lockdown are keeping each other company by singing, dancing and playing music from the balconies.
Connecting with local businesses who are struggling
At Dirty Clean Food, we are striving to do our bit to promote caremongering—not scaremongering—too. So, we’ve teamed up with some local hospitality businesses who are struggling.
Yes, we said caremongering. Join the movement.
Over the next few weeks (or months, who knows), we will be writing a series of stories on the people and businesses we are collaborating with.
The reason is, we want you to know about their incredible products that are now available - products which we are sure you will love, especially during a time of such scarcity.
Plus, we thought you might like to know more about the passionate folk in the community who are working hard to make a positive change in the world.
After all, now more than ever, the decisions we make as conscious consumers can be the difference between creating a better world and stagnancy.
The local businesses we are teaming up with
As we mentioned, we will be sharing many stories with you. But for the meantime, here are two of the businesses we are working with and will be writing about shortly. There are more to come, so watch this space:
Short Order Burger: We are teaming up with WA’s best burger joint (arguably), so you can buy their famous grass-fed beef patties - and, ultimately, make your Short Order Burger at home until they can open their doors again for the real deal.
Fins Seafood: We can now offer you a selection of the finest restaurant quality seafood available. The team at Fins also have a passion for local, sustainable food and focus on premium wild caught Australian Seafood.
So, a heads up: When you buy the products from these folks, you’re not only getting the highest quality, most delicious products sustainably created. You’re also helping local businesses survive this most unsettling time.
