YORK, Pa. — Downtown Inc announced Wednesday it is spearheading two initiatives to support and promote downtown York restaurants while indoor dining is closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The first effort is a community-wide Takeout Tuesday to take place on Dec. 22.

"With more than 40 restaurants in Downtown York offering either takeout, delivery, or both on Takeout Tuesday, members of the community are sure to find a restaurant to support for any meal of the day," Downtown Inc said in a press release. "On December 22nd, the community is encouraged to order takeout from their favorite restaurant and create a boost to the local restaurant businesses."

In addition to Takeout Tuesday, Downtown Inc is promoting the many restaurants of Downtown York offering holiday meal and dessert takeout, through their Holiday Meal Takeout Webpage. 

Customers can order online or by phone, leave the cooking to the culinary pros and pick up just in time for their holiday celebrations at home, Downtown Inc said.

“We know that this season will be challenging for the restaurant community,” said Director of Downtown Inc, Elaine Bonneau, “but we also recognize that this is an opportunity to rise to the occasion and come together to support our favorite restaurants and local business owners who are our friends, family, and neighbors.”
