Save our Supply launches to help us show our support and save local hospitality
We all know that right now our hospitality industry, and its suppliers, are in need of some serious support. As a community we have already come out in force, ordering takeaway from our favourites to help them continue to trade through these tough times. With the landscape changing so rapidly around us, however, it can be easy to forget to spread the love, and also to throw some to the much-loved venues that have been forced to temporarily close. Save Our Supply has launched to help remind us, providing a ‘status report’ on how we can support our favourite restaurants and cafes during the coronavirus crisis.
Save Our Supply is the brainchild of Trent Barton and Scott Mackenzie of Standing By, who launched the initiative to help rally support for the Brisbane hospitality industry. They could see many of their favourites, including collaborators and friends, having to urgently adapt or close their doors, and wanted to create a way for the community to show, and know, how important these places are to our lives and our city. A way to help ensure that those restaurants, cafes and bars – as well as the supply chain behind them – come out on the other side.
The initiative functions as a ‘status report’ of how you can show your support regardless of whether your favourite is open or closed – Save Our Supply will list them on its Instagram page and corresponding website, and provide links if they have takeaway, preorders, delivery or gift vouchers available. Save Our Supply’s message is simple – order your favourites, on rotation, at least once a week and/or buy a gift voucher to use in the future, then share @saveour.supply’s posts and who you supported with the tag #SaveOurSupply. If your favourite isn’t on the list, you can submit them via the website and they will be added ASAP. To find out more and spread the love, head to the Save Our Supply Instagram page.
