Chef signs on to restaurant industry effort

UWindsor executive chef Paolo Vasapolli has endorsed a campaign to set a record for the most takeout food ordered by Canadians in one day.

An industry association has designated today — Thursday, April 15 — National Takeout Day.

“It’s all about supporting our local restaurants that have been hit so hard by social distancing restrictions,” says Vasapolli. “Imagine if every faculty and staff member participated, just by ordering out on this day from their favourite place.”

Canada Takeout asks patrons to submit their receipt totals to its online tracker so it can measure the campaign’s impact. Find more information on its website.
