Food Fest $20 Downtown Morris - Spend $20 each week at downtown restaurants

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Downtown Morris loves its festivals so let’s continue the tradition and support our downtown dining establishments!

Our downtown restaurants have struggled for most of this year as a result of COVID-19. Many could quickly run short of cash to support day-to-day operations and staff wages.  Our locally-owned restaurants are forced to make the difficult choice between community health and economic survival. Without our help, many will not survive this winter.

Is there something we can do to help? YES! And, we’ve done the math.  By committing to spend at least $20 each week in takeout this winter, we can do it!  That’s $20 each week, per person.  If a quarter of Morris’ almost 15,000 residents (or 3,750 people) pledge to spend $20.00 per week at our downtown restaurants, that would mean $75,000 per week spent at our restaurants!  With approximately 20 downtown restaurants, that equates to $3,750 per restaurant each week to cover operational costs.  This could be the difference between economic survival or closure. 

So, let’s pledge today, to consistently order take out and support our local restaurants while this is their only option.
