California Takeout Tuesday

Support for California’s Restaurant Industry

As Californians stay home to flatten the curve on the spread of the coronavirus, small businesses, especially restaurants, have taken a substantial hit. While dining rooms are closed, many kitchens remain open to serve takeout and delivery meals to communities and jobs for their employees.

As a sign of support for local restaurants, Visit California asks that you share in promoting #CATakeoutTuesday.

The campaign is social media-focused and aimed at encouraging Californians to order takeout from their favorite restaurants every Tuesday.

Visit California is driving consumer awareness by sharing culinary content across its owned channels on Tuesdays, including social posts, blogs, engagement questions and content from partner chefs and restaurants.
