Hospitality leaders call for Australians to #EatAloneTogether

Restaurant & Catering Australia (R&CA), in partnership with Entertainment and several high-profile food industry personalities, has issued a call to action campaign for all Australians to unite and support their local cafés, restaurants, eateries, and artisan food producers that have been greatly affected by COVID-19 restrictions.

The campaign, driven by the hashtag #EatAloneTogether, calls on all Australians to continue to order takeaway or delivery meals from their favourite local eateries.

The campaign also encourages diners to keep celebrating those special moments and continue to share meals together, but relying on digital connectivity to still allow them to have family and friends over for dinner. This can be done by ordering from separate venues and sharing that meal together, or having multiple households order from the same venue to form a ‘digital reservation’ at their favourite venue.

#EatAloneTogether has brought together high-profile Australian dining and entertainment personalities across multiple social media videos designed to encourage the Australian dining public to support their restaurants.

This includes high-profile chefs Peter Gilmore, Matt Moran, Maggie Beer, Colin Fassnidge, Adriano Zumbo, and Neil Perry; former MasterChef Contestants Larissa Takchi and Callum Hann; journalists Richard Wilkins and Chris Bath; and TV Personalities Mark & Mitch, Justine Schofield, and Neale Whitaker.

R&CA says #EatAloneTogether is about celebrating togetherness with food while supporting your local café, restaurant or eatery.

R&CA is an industry association representing over 47,000 restaurants, cafés and caterers across Australia, with Entertainment supporting more than 5000 restaurants within their membership.
