Frankston food-lovers could win a family meal each week if they pledge to order online to help keep their cafes and restaurants afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Almost 200 people have signed a petition promising to order takeaway from their favourite eatery at least once a fortnight as part of The Frankston Food Move – a three-month campaign encouraging residents to join the pledge and spread the word via their social media channels using the hashtag #theFrankstonFoodMove.
Those who sign the pledge at change.org/thefrankstonfoodmove and share a photo of their meal on social media will go into the draw to win a $50 voucher from their chosen online venue. Don’t forget to make your post public when you share photos on Facebook.
Frankston’s Helen James, pictured, said she was more than happy to order her family’s favourite Japanese cuisine from Okami in Frankston. “We want to do our bit for the local hospitality industry and keep them going through this for as long as possible.”
Caleb Cox, the owner of Bowl’d in Frankston, said the campaign was a big help. “Just by sharing a post or tagging a business, you are creating hype and a flow-on effect which is making an impact during these heartbreaking times.”
Andrea Papapostolou, from Vero Pasta and Wine in Frankston, said it was essential people came out to support their favourite hospitality businesses. “Call your favourite restaurant and pick up your own meal to ensure the restaurant gets 100 per cent of the profits.”
