Deliver, carryout or curbside pickup? Alexandria is one of dozens of Virginia localities now participating in the Virginia is the Restaurant Lovers Takeout Week.

The March 30-April 5 effort to help out local restaurants impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic was organized by the Virginia Tourism Corporation and Virginia Restaurant, Lodging, and Travel Association.

“Virginia’s restaurant industry has been hit especially hard during this time,” Eric Terry, president of the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging and Travel Association said in a statement. “Restaurants are so vital to our economy and we encourage those who can afford to do so, to continue to help out these establishments that have helped to put Virginia on the map.”

“Virginia is for Restaurant Lovers” t-shirts are also being sold, and a portion of the proceeds go toward providing relief for food service workers. Participants this week are encouraged to share their experience on social media with #VirginiaEatsLocal.
