Returning for a fifth installment, The Great American Takeout is adding a springtime twist on Tuesday, April 21.
The initiative to aid the struggling foodservice community during the ongoing coronavirus encourages Americans to support the establishments they love by ordering pick-up or delivery meals. This week, American consumers are asked to bring the springtime spirit home while supporting the struggling industry by ordering a takeout meal, throwing down a blanket in the backyard (or living room) and enjoying a picnic at home.
To help with the initiative, Hidden Valley Ranch, in partnership with Ventura Foods, will award $50 gift cards to 200 at-home picnickers for use on their next takeout meal. Americans can enter for a chance to win by ordering takeout or delivery on Tuesday, April 21, posting a photo of the home picnic with the hashtags #TheGreatAmericanTakeout, #HVR and #Sweepstakes, and tagging @TheGATakeout on Twitter or @thegreatamericantakeout on Instagram. Full rules can be found here.
“We are proud to partner with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout to support the estimated 15 million Americans who rely on the restaurant industry to provide income in this challenging time,” says Chris Klimas, director of Hidden Valley Kitchens Foodservice Sales. “Please show your support for your favorite local restaurant by ordering takeout via delivery or pickup, with or without a side of ranch!”
“As a longstanding member of the foodservice industry, we believe #TheGreatAmericanTakeout is a powerful way for each of us to demonstrate our support for restaurants and their workers,” says Ahmad Popal, vice president of marketing, Ventura Foods. “As a company dedicated to helping our customers delight their customers, we’re proud to provide a vehicle for restaurants to continue to delight – even during the toughest of times.”
