Food & Drink Delivery Options in Halifax
We’re over a month in and the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve in Nova Scotia. Sure, some businesses and thriving (and that’s amazing) but there are also many who are struggling to stay afloat. Restaurants are certainly among those but even in the face of trying times, many have pivoted their businesses to accommodate the new “stay the blazes home” mandate. There is an incredible amount of food and drink delivery options in Halifax right now!
And that, dearest blog readers, is what this entire blog post is all about. Consider this a living document. We’ll be highlighting some of the restaurants, Nova Scotia craft breweries, Nova Scotia wineries, distillers, and local producers that are delivering to Halifax. I’ll be popping back each week to update this list and keep you well informed of your options.
SIDE NOTE: We live in Halifax, so we’re focusing on businesses who deliver TO Halifax, however, many of the amazing places we’ll be sharing deliver province wide and beyond.
Last week, we started participating in #nationaltakeoutday to support our precious food and beverage industry. Did you? Aside from ordering take-out on Wednesdays, we’re re-allocating other parts of our budget to order from these businesses even more. We hope this article inspires you to do the same.
