THE PLEDGE

I pledge that I will order one or more meals each fortnight from a café, restaurant or bar within Frankston City (including Frankston South, Frankston North, Seaford, Skye, Carrum Downs, Langwarrin, Langwarrin South, Karingal or Sandhurst) from now until the Federal Government reverses its decision to restrict social gatherings and distancing and the immediate Coronavirus threat is deemed over.

I pledge to;

  • Order via online, click and collect, phone, pick up (all while maintaining safe social distancing practices) one or more meals or beverages each fortnight from a Frankston business.
  • Take a photo of my food/drink and share on social media with the hashtag #theFrankstonFoodMove

About #theFrankstonFoodMove

Frankston City’s love of dining out is about to come to a grinding halt.

Just like the rest of the world, Frankston City’s hospitality industry is facing the biggest threat it’s ever been served and it needs our help to keep food on the plate.

Dining out with your family at your favourite restaurant. Gone.

Meeting mates for a beer in a bar. Gone.

Catching up for a coffee with your mothers’ group. Gone.

Eating out as we know it, is fast becoming a thing of the past as Australia works hard to slow the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Protecting the health and safety of the Australian public is vital. It is a common-sense approach that will help in keeping us all safe in the long-run.

But in the meantime, while we practice safe distancing and retreat indoors to try to combat the spread of this virus, hundreds of our favourite cafes, bars and restaurants are crumbling.

There are currently 252 cafes and restaurants in Frankston City, 297 takeaway food services, 69 catering services, 23 pubs, taverns and bars and 14 hospitality clubs

There are more than 3000 food and beverage staff city-wide and about 600 in the city centre alone.

Many of these retailers, before they’ve even opened their doors, have invested thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars to provide us with a venue where we can eat, drink and be merry.

So what can we do right now to help them during this tough time?

How can we keep their kitchens thriving, their coffee pots hot and their beers cold so they can withstand this pandemic and be there for us on the other side as we rise out of our isolation ready to devour a scrumptious seafood degustation from Seagulls Greek Tavern,  a craft beer from Mr Banks Brewing Co or a beloved beef burger and chips from Humdinger?

We stand up and make a commitment to eat and drink. We take a pledge. We vow to stay faithful to our local food and beverage venues as they adapt to thrive (digitally) during this pandemic.

So please join us in signing and sharing this pledge so that together we can keep Frankston City’s hospitality sector alive and afloat.
