The recent pandemic has been a difficult experience for us as well as all our peers and partners in the food industry. Restaurants were put to a full stop, some lost their jobs, and others had to close down permanently. The ones who survived are fortunate enough to get by.
Now more than ever, we need to help each other out — as diners, chefs and business owners. Here are some ways you can help our foodservice industry:
Support Local Suppliers
Most businesses were hit hard by the pandemic, most especially the MSMEs or micro, small and medium enterprises. Recovery will be hard for them, and they need the help of the community to bounce back.
One way is by partnering up with Baguio Farmers for your vegetable needs. Not only do you give business support to the thriving farmers, but you also guarantee a reliable supply of fresh vegetables for your business at a more than reasonable price. You can find suppliers that you can partner up with through Facebook groups such as Buy Local, For Local.
Pay it Forward
Every day is a challenge on how we can move forward. If your business is fortunate enough to have resources to share, we encourage you to do so. By doing good for the community, you’ll notice how kindness can pay you back in the long run.
Need some extra help or business support? Ask your neighbors who are in need of some extra cash or fellow business owners who have laid-off workers.
And if you want to go the extra mile, donating goods, products, or services are very much needed today. Frontliners, the less fortunate, and a few organizations are open for donations in kind.
