The hospitality industry are currently navigating their way around the challenging climate posed by COVID-19. While our restaurants, cafés, bars, breweries and wineries are doing their best to adapt, it's important the community also adapt to the new normal, and embrace the wonderful hospitality scene during its time of need.
Here are 7 ways you can show support to our food and beverage industry during these unprecedented times:
- Buy a gift voucher
This gives immediate financial relief to businesses and means you can look forward to dining out when your favourite restaurant re-opens. TheFork's Save Our Resturants website is a great place to start!
- Order delivery / pick-up take away
Call ahead and see if your favourite place to eat and drink offer their own delivery service or contact-less pick up. This way 100% of your money goes towards supporting them. Search through our supporting hospitality page to see who are offering deliveries and take away.
- Buy a box of fresh produce
Purchase a local produce box that supports local produce suppliers in South Australia. Lot.100 and AMJ Produce are delivering fresh produce boxes straight to your door.
- Have a virtual experience
See if your favourite winery or brewery are embracing the virtual tastings and order your own beverages so you can join in. Search through our supporting hospitality page to see where you can order some drinks to be delivered to your door.
- Share the love
Drop a meal at someone's doorstep who you know might need some support. Small acts of kindness can go a long way. If you've done something kind or seen an act of kindness, use the hashtag #ShareKind and tag @RAAofSA to support their movement of sharing the kindness.

Take a moment to reflect on your favourite restaurants, cafes, bars, or wineries and write a positive review online.
