With the current outbreak, a lot of us are spending a lot of time at home. This means working from your bed, watching a lot of streaming, and yes, stress eating. Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that we are home because of a pandemic and you need to act as such. When getting food in Los Angeles, try to keep the following things in mind.
Order Takeout or Delivery
This should go without saying, especially given the executive order barring Los Angeles restaurants from providing dine-in service, but you shouldn’t be eating out in restaurants right now. Instead, order takeout or delivery to avoid extended exposure to other people. If you order delivery, try to tip well given the circumstances, and maybe ask the carrier to drop off your order outside your door for extra caution.
Support Local Restaurants
Your local businesses are struggling and they need your help! With the mandatory closures and reduced attendance, local businesses are having a hard time making ends meet. If you are ordering food, consider supporting independent restaurants rather than large chains and the like. If you are not sure whether your local favorite offers takeout or delivery, give them a call! At times like these, it’s very important to stand in solidarity with your community. There are so many different options for food in Los Angeles that you are bound to have plenty to choose from.
Be Prudent Getting Groceries
Times are tough, we all know that. However, that is not necessarily a reason to go panic buying and hoard groceries and supplies. Everyone needs to stock up and people getting every egg carton in the grocery store is not helping anybody. When getting groceries, be prudent and responsible with how much you buy. You’re not stocking up a bunker for doomsday, you’re just getting a few weeks’ worths of groceries. Also, be sure to avoid large crowds and keep your distance from other shoppers.
