As COVID strikes once again, our team is currently working hard from home to prepare for Level 3 and see what that looks like for Foodprint, our eateries and our customers.
We hope everyone’s doing okay during this time and has everything they need.
As you know, hospitality gets hit hard each time we go into lockdown. It was wonderful to see so many people out there supporting their locals in the hours before lockdown, ensuring that their food wasn’t wasted. Many eateries have also donated their supplies, making sure it’s eaten. Each time, this has huge costs to these businesses, so when we can, make sure you’re back out there supporting them. We want to assure you that we’re working hard during this time to ensure that we’re supporting the eateries in our community as best we can.
In the meantime, here are a few things we can do during lockdown to keep ourselves busy:
Eat well (or not!): The best thing you can do for your mind and body is to fuel it with healthy food. However, eating a whole tub of ice cream is good for the soul, so…
Get outside: Whether it's for a walk, run or a bike ride, spending some time outside can work wonders for refreshing our bodies and our minds
Stay connected: If you were meant to be catching up with a friend for dinner or a drink this week, keep it in the diary and move it online. You can still eat and drink together, but apart. Check-in with your mates and check-in with yourself. If you need some help, reach out to your friends or there are loads of other resources available online, starting with 1737.
Support your locals: We know you know this and are always blown away by the amount of support the eateries we work with see during lockdowns. Keep supporting them and keep working towards our common goal of reducing waste.
Do your best to keep busy: There’s plenty of Netflix to be consumed, books to be read, recipes to be made and art to be done.
Mask making: As masks become mandatory, there’s never been a better time to learn how to make them. There are many tutorials on YouTube that are easy to follow, including this one.
And the most important one, go easy on yourself.
