Ever since Governor Gavin Newsom announced the stay-at-home mandate for the state of California, the food service industry has been adapting in order to keep their doors open. Adapting to hardship is no stranger to our local businesses as they have worked through fires, floods and mudslides. In response to COVID-19, many local restaurants are now offering takeout and/or delivery services. Not only does this minimize human interaction, but you can also support your favorite small businesses and enjoy your favorite foods in the comfort and safety of your own home. Here are some local businesses that are open and excited to serve you (while 6 feet away!).
