As the world struggles to shut down COVID-19, many businesses have had to shutter (hopefully temporarily). But that doesn’t mean that all of our customers are closed. We’ve compiled a list of restaurants, grocery stores, and cafes in the tri-state area that are still operating (though most in a limited capacity) as of today, March 26th. If you have the means, we encourage you to support them!

Ox Verte has always believed that food is medicine and their mission “is to nourish our bodies and nurture our communities.” In light of recent events, they’ve launched a home delivery service in order to get you the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Ox “Work from Home” is up and running, bringing you tasty options like their Bibimbap Bowl, House Pickles, Elderberry Tonics, Jumbo Sea-Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, and more. Order today!

The DeRossi Global group, which is made up of vegan restaurants Avant Garden, Honeybee’s, Ladybird, Mother of Pearl, and Night Music, is offering free to-go meals for kids from 4-9 p.m. today through Saturday.

Stop by to pick up your lunch and/or help fund this special effort: DeRossi Global’s GoFundMe page!

Thanks for reading along and for your support! If you’re able to do so, we also encourage you to donate to your local food bank. In the meantime, stay home if you can, eat well, wash your hands, and take care of each other. We are only going to get through this pandemic if we all help each other out!
